NAMI has become the nation’s voice on mental illness
NAMI San Francisco’s mission is to advocate for a life of quality and dignity by providing education, resources and emotional support to families and those affected by mental illness (brain disorders). We strive to end discrimination and stigma for all those persons affected by these illnesses through broader education and collaboration with the whole community.
Donations and membership dues help us to fulfill our mission of providing support and education to individuals and families affected by severe mental illness, and in our efforts to advocate for improvements in the care and protection of our loved ones. We are working hard to stamp out stigma and encourage effective research in studies of brain.
