Our Impact

NAMI Westside Los Angeles offers free education programs along with support, guidance, and hope for the growing number of Angelenos affected by mental health conditions.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI provides education, support, and advocacy to improve the lives of those living with mental illness, as well as their families and friends, mental health professionals, and all who share NAMI’s vision and mission. The nonprofit organization was founded in 1979, and now has more than 210,000 members and 1,200 affiliate groups across the U.S. It was named one of the “top 100 charities most likely to change the world” (Worth magazine).

The NAMI Westside Los Angeles chapter is one of a number of affiliates of both the NAMI California and the NAMI National. We provide services in the Westside Los Angeles region.
