NAMI Colorado is the State organization for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization. We are an alliance nationwide with 48 State Organizations and more than 600 local Affiliates, dedicated to raising awareness by providing Support and Education as pathways to holistic wellness for those living with mental health challenges and their loved ones who invest their lives as caregivers.
Together, we can realize our shared vision of a nation where anyone affected by mental illness can get the appropriate support and quality of care to live healthy, fulfilling lives — a nation where no one feels alone in their struggle.
