Find Help, Find Hope!


We are the National Alliance on Mental Illness Greater Orlando (NAMIGO) and we’re so glad you’re here! We are a grassroots community network of support for anyone affected by mental health conditions – individuals and their family, friends and caregivers.

We want to ensure that no one in Central Florida who is living with mental illness is alone in their journey to recovery and mental health wellness. We serve Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties.

We believe it’s okay to ask for help! Our services are free for all, and all are welcome.

If you need assistance, we’ll help connect you to a community of caring – people who have walked in your shoes, who understand what you are feeling, and who will help you with your specific needs for a mental wellness support system that is free of judgment and stigma. Our non-profit services also include mental health-related resources and information as well as community events and social activities.

Here you’ll find information on our programs, services, events and community resources. We also link frequently to for mental health information. For assistance, get in touch with us – we’re just a phone call or email away!
