Additional Information: NAMI is a great organization, but was originally developed for family members, not the consumers ourselves. I am a consumer and I started this affiliate of NAMI in my town. I try to run the organization so that every person with a mental illness who comes to us feels welcome and valued and is given a supportive encouraging environment in which to develop skills to live a fully functioning life.
