HISTORY AND MISSION
Founded in 1983, NAMI PA ( National Alliance on Mental Illness of Pennsylvania) is the largest statewide non-profit organization dedicated to helping mental health consumers and their families rebuild their lives and conquer the challenges posed by severe and persistent mental illness.
This mission is accomplished through programs designed to offer support and education to our membership and to advocate for better mental health services on their behalf.
We also strive to educate the public about the true nature of mental illness to combat the stigma and discrimination often faced by persons with mental illness.
If you have questions about mental illness or our support services, want to find the NAMI PA affiliate in your community, become a member, or make a tax-deductible donation, please call us at 717-238-1514, or toll-free in PA 1-800-223-0500. Office hours are 9 am-5 pm, Monday through Friday.
