Find Help, Find Hope

WHO WE ARE:

The families and members of NAMI Greater Orlando are here to help! We offer understanding to anyone concerned about mental illnesses and the treatment of mental illness.

Mental illnesses are brain disorders that are biologically based medical problems. Untreated, they can cause severe disturbances in thinking, feeling and relating. This results in substantially diminished capacity for dealing with the ordinary demands of life. Mental illness can affect persons of any age and occur in any family. They are not caused by bad parenting and not evidence of weakness of character.

Mission

The mission of NAMIGO is to improve the quality of life of individuals, their families, loved ones and caregivers affected by mental health conditions through education, support and advocacy.

Our Vision

The vision of NAMIGO is that individuals living with severe and persistent mental illnesses can recover, and lead productive and meaningful lives.
