Our Mission at NAMI Colorado

 

The mission of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Colorado is to build communities of recovery and hope by educating, supporting and advocating for individuals affected by mental illness and their families.

 



NAMI Colorado is dedicated to building better lives for the 250,000 plus Coloradoans and their families who are affected by any number of mental illnesses - schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, PTSD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, borderline personality disorder, panic disorder and others.

We do this by providing:

  -- free educational classes about mental illness to the community;
  -- support groups for those with mental illness and their families;
  -- political advocacy for all concerned;
  -- volunteer support and donations.
  -- Helpline 
  

NAMI Colorado has a new Law Line, targeting these seven areas:

   --Involuntary civil commitment
   --Criminal cases
   --Special education
   --Employment
   --Trusts, guardianships, special needs planning, Medicaid
   --Social Security disability
   --Family Law (in limited counties)

Call 303-321-3104 or 888-566-6264.  Legal services provided by the volunteer attorneys are limited in scope. Please click to read more.
