During this difficult time, the NAMI HelpLine is here for you.

The NAMI HelpLine is a free, nationwide peer-support service providing information, resource referrals, and support to people living with a mental health condition, their families and caregivers, mental health providers, and the public.

  • are informed on NAMI programs and support groups, as well as how to locate your local NAMI affiliate.
  • are trained to help identify the best resource options for your concern.
  • are knowledgeable and a source of accurate information about relevant topics.
  • care.

HelpLine staff and volunteers DO NOT:

  • provide mental health counseling, advice, personal advocacy, or referrals to mental health providers or lawyers.
  • provide individual casework, legal representations, or any type of individual advocacy.
