Who We Are
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. What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation’s leading voice on mental health. Today, we are an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need. NAMI Forsyth Dawson Lumpkin is one of the many local affiliates. We are located in Cumming, Georgia, and serve consumers and families in the counties of Forsyth, Dawson, Lumpkin and beyond. NAMI FDL relies on gifts and contributions to support our important work.
What We Do
We educate. Our education programs ensure that hundreds of thousands of families, individuals and educators get the support and information they need.
We advocate. NAMI shapes the national public policy landscape for people with mental illness and their families and provides grassroots volunteer leaders with the tools, resources and skills necessary to save mental health in all states.
