Welcome to the Montana chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)

NAMI Montana  supports, educates, and advocates for Montanans with mental illnesses and their families.

Mental Health Resource Guides

When someone is in crisis, an easy to use list of options can mean all the difference. NAMI Montana offers County Mental Health Guides for all 56 Counties and a State Wide Mental Health Resource Guide. Formatted to print to hand out at events, waiting rooms, or to give family and friends. These valuable handouts are updated frequently.

Local NAMI Affiliates
Of all of NAMI Montana’s work, we are particularly proud of our education programs. Our 8-week courses offer powerful insight into mental illness and recovery that is incredibly valuable to individuals struggling with mental illness and their families. NAMI Montana believes that these courses save lives. We are happy to offer them free of charge to the people and families that need them.

In addition to the family-to-family and peer-to-peer courses, we are happy to host an annual conference featuring presentations by top researchers, authors, and other figures from the mental illness field. We can’t wait to share details about our upcoming 2022 conference, located in beautiful Kalispell Montana.

How NAMI Montana Accomplishes its Mission

1.  Helping concerned families and friends start up local support, education, and advocacy groups.

2.  Educating the public to dispel mis-perceptions and overcome the stigma associated with mental illness.

3.  Advocating for the interests of persons with mental illness, including advocacy for enlightened and effective laws and adequate funding for services.

4.  Teaming with mental health service providers and other advocacy organizations to improve service delivery and encourage them to work with families as allies.

5.  Promoting a range of support services in the community, including appropriate housing, income maintenance, low-stress employment and training, social networks, medical and rehabilitation services, and assertive case management.

6.  Promoting research into the physiological, neurological, biochemical and genetic aspects of severe and persistent mental illness that could point to causes, treatment, and prevention.
