A Powerful Voice in the Mental Health Community
NAMI Greater Houston was established in 1988 by a group of family members who were desperate to find adequate and appropriate treatment for their loved ones who had been diagnosed with a mental illness. By joining together, these parents believed that they could advocate for improved services for persons living in the Greater Houston region.
With a growing membership of people in recovery, family members, friends and professionals, NAMI Greater Houston works diligently to improve the quality of life for children, adults and families who are living with a mental illness through the offering of free educational classes, peer-facilitated support groups and grassroots advocacy initiatives.
NAMI Greater Houston educational classes and support group initiatives are designed for and directed towards those diagnosed with or experiencing the symptoms of a mental illness, family members, friends, professionals and the community at-large. In addition, NAMI Greater Houston sponsors a myriad of mental health outreach programs designed to educate diverse audiences on the complexities of mental illness; community resources; and evidenced based coping and wellness strategies.
We work to effectively reach those in need of immediate support and resources by sponsoring provider education meetings, community awareness events, information and referrals through the NAMI Support Education & Advocacy (SEA) Center and by maintaining one of Houston’s most powerful voices in the mental health community.
