What We Do

What We Do

NAMI Sonoma County offers free education programs that provide current information, support and hope; support groups for families, friends and persons living with mental illness, and a Warmline information and referral service. We raise public awareness and understanding of mental illness and strive to dispel its stigma.

Educate

NAMI Family-to-Family

Our free, 12 session educational program for family, significant others and friends of people living with mental illness is a designated evidenced-based program shown by research to significantly improve coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to an individual living with mental illness.

NAMI Ending the Silence

This free 50-minute classroom presentation helps middle and high schoolers understand mental illness, teaches them about the warning signs for themselves and their friends and helps to change perceptions around mental health conditions. Students get to hear about the reality of living with a mental health condition.

NAMI In Our Own Voice

This free 60- or 90-minute presentation provides a first-hand account of what it’s like to live with a mental illness, humanizing this misunderstood topic and demonstrating that it’s possible to live well with mental illness. Presenters answer questions, helping to dispel stereotypes.
