NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness. NAMI Nebraska provides statewide support to families and friends of individuals with mental illness. We also educate the public about mental illness using literature, speaking engagements, videos, workshops, conferences and this website. In addition, through ongoing communication with mental health professionals and public officials, we are seeking to improve and expand mental health services.
We advocate for statewide mental health reform, equitable medical insurance, affordable housing, employment and civil liberties.
NAMI-Nebraska is a nonprofit, grassroots organization dedicated to education, support and advocacy for anyone whose life has been touched by mental illness. We are funded in part by grants from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services and membership dues and donations. Our membership consists of individuals with mental illness, their families and friends and concerned mental health professionals.
Our toll-free helpline (877) 463-6264 is available for anyone seeking education and understanding about mental illness, a support group, or advocacy resources.
