NAMI provides a unique service to families and individuals affected by mental illness, by providing hope, support, and understanding through our wonderful bilingual staff with lived experience, educational programs, connection to resources, and mental health advocacy.
“Before connecting with NAMI Monterey County my family and I knew nothing about my sibling’s diagnosis of Schizophrenia. We were scared for the future and did not know how to cope. NAMI gave us hope. We soon realized, through participation in their community events and the NAMI Family-to-Family class, life after a diagnosis is possible. My family learned about my sibling’s illness and how to be patient and supportive. My mother and I now teach NAMI Familia-a-Familia classes to help spread hope & awareness within the Latino community.”
