The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Virginia was created in 1984 to provide support, education, and advocacy for individuals and families in Virginia affected by mental illness. Along with our community-based affiliates, we provide education, support, information, training, and resources, and engage in systems change policy advocacy. NAMI Virginia is located in Richmond, Virginia, where we are appropriately situated in close proximity to the state legislature.
Our mission is to promote recovery and improve the quality of life of Virginians with serious mental illness through support, education, and advocacy. We envision a world where all people affected by mental illness get the help, hope, and support that they need.
