NAMI Nebraska Family to Family

Why You Should Support NAMI Nebraska for Omaha Gives

NAMI Nebraska is the state chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. NAMI Nebraska serves the community by providing much needed support groups and educational programs for mental health challenges across the state and also in Omaha. NAMI also offers a 12-week education program called Family-to-Family that is for those who give support to others and the program called Basics, focused on young children. These programs are offered at no cost so no one is denied service based on ability to pay.

If you have a mental health issue, there is a group for you. If you have a family member with a mental health problem and you want to support them in a better way, there is a class to help with that. If you have a child with a mental health issue, there is an education program for caregivers. NAMI Nebraska also provides education throughout Nebraska so people can better understand the challenges and success in the area mental health. Again, everything that NAMI offers is at no cost to the community, but the results of their support groups have been proven clinically effective. NAMI provides Nebraska over a million dollars in free care for our residents in a year.

NAMI Nebraska is about helping people reach their hopes, dreams, and goals in life, but it is also about saving lives. Sometimes these community services are the last line of defense when someone has given up the clinicians and the system. Since volunteers with lived experience run all of the classes and support groups, the cost of the organization of providing service is extremely of cost effective. One out of five people are affected by a mental illness and we hope you will consider helping us reach out to support those in Nebraska through your support, your time and your donation.
