Welcome to NAMI

At NAMI Washington County, our mission is to improve the lives of those affected by mental illness through support, education, and advocacy.

We Believe in:

  • Offering understanding to each member

  • Being mutually sensitive

  • Providing inspiration

  • Giving support

  • Sharing information

  • Educating the general public in the area of mental health

  • Actively advocating for recognition for mental health programs

  • Seeking legislation to aid the mentally ill
