New: NAMI Teen & Young Adult HelpLine

The new NAMI Teen & Young Adult (T&YA) HelpLine is now live! This free, nationwide peer-support service provides a safe space for young people to connect with peers who understand their challenges and can offer the resources to help.

The NAMI T&YA HelpLine Specialists are young adults who are experienced, well-trained and available by phone, text or chat to provide resources and guidance so no one needs to go through their mental health journey alone.
