NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. Your local NAMI Affiliates and volunteer leaders work in communities across the country to raise awareness and provide essential and free education, advocacy, and support group programs.
NAMI South Shore began in 2012 as a group of family members and professionals with a goal to bring NAMI’s programs to the communities we live and work in. Offering expanded educational opportunities resulted in our Workshop Series. Concern about how we can more directly help people with lived experience and their recovery resulted in the Get Going program. We are always thinking of ways we can accomplish our mission of helping people with mental health concerns and their friends and families. Join us on our journey.
