NAMI-Nebraska is a nonprofit, grassroots organization dedicated to education, support and advocacy for anyone whose life has been touched by mental illness.
NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness. NAMI Nebraska provides statewide support to families and friends of individuals with mental illness. We also educate the public about mental illness using literature, speaking engagements, videos, workshops, conferences and this website. In addition, through ongoing communication with mental health professionals and public officials, we are seeking to improve and expand mental health services. We advocate for statewide mental health reform, equitable medical insurance, affordable housing, employment and civil liberties.
