About NAMI Rome

NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. No different than other NAMI affiliates, NAMI Rome was established in the 1980’s by a tireless and very small group who sought to improve the lives of their loved ones. From this and subsequent classes came additional interested family members and individuals with a mental illness who wanted to join the movement. NAMI Rome educates, advocates and supports people with mental illness and family members/friends throughout NW Georgia.
