During this difficult time, the NAMI HelpLine is here for you.

The NAMI HelpLine is a free, nationwide peer-support service providing information, resource referrals, and support to people living with a mental health condition, their families and caregivers, mental health providers, and the public.

  • are trained to help identify the best resource options for your individual concern.
  • are knowledgeable and a source of accurate information about relevant topics.
