About

 

OUR MISSION

NAMI Greater Milwaukee is a community-based, self-help, support, education and advocacy organization dedicated to improving the lives of those with mental illness, their families and those affected by mental illness.

HISTORY

On February 26, 1979, Mrs. Roz Libman, along with a small group of Milwaukee area families formed the Alliance for the Mentally Ill (AMI) of Greater Milwaukee, Inc., in response to their shared challenges to get help for their children living with severe and persistent mental illnesses.  

TODAY

NAMI Greater Milwaukee is one of 32 affiliates in Wisconsin and one of over 700 nationwide. We are a part of the nation's largest grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by a mental illness. We offer signature NAMI classes and support groups, each led by trained facilitators with lived experience.

Resilience is the skill to recover from setbacks, adapt well to change and keep moving forward in health.
