Support the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), which advocates for greater understanding of mental illnesses and helps afflicted Americans improve their lives.
Founded in 1979 and based in Arlington, Virginia, the grassroots organization fights the stigma attached to mental illnesses and advocates for better treatment options. It also connects sufferers, their families and their support networks with resources to demystify and treat mental illness.
Its topics of concern include anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders, and more, as well as related conditions, such as sleep disorders, psychosis, dual diagnoses, and suicide.
