Who We Are
Since 1984 NAMI Connecticut has been the state chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. We are a statewide grassroots organization that is dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals living with mental illness, as well as their families and loved ones. In collaboration with our 9 local affiliates, we serve all people in Connecticut through our education, support, and advocacy programs at the state and local levels. We are located in West Hartford, Connecticut.
We want everyone affected by mental illness to know they are not alone.
What We Do
NAMI Connecticut plays an active role providing support, education, and advocacy at the community level. We operate support groups to let people know they are not alone and to be there with information and support when needed. Our affiliates speak publicly to educate others about mental health conditions and provide educational programs, free of cost, to youth and young adults, parents, individuals, and families affected by mental illness. They advocate for effective and timely services from their local service providers, and they offer hope to those experiencing the impact of mental illness.
