NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania
NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania is dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness through recovery focused support, education and advocacy.
We believe all adults, children and adolescents affected by mental illness, as well as their connected family members and involved health care professionals, need a collective voice that promotes improvements in quality of care and cultivates the development of, and access to, resources encouraging recovery efforts. Staff, board members and volunteers are dedicated to meeting these goals through education, advocacy and support.
