NAMI Colorado Springs

What

NAMI educates, supports, and advocates for local people affected by mental illness. We provide free classes, support groups and education programs for those living with mental health conditions, and for their loved ones, educators, care providers, law enforcement officers and others. By focusing on early education, identification and prevention, NAMI works to improve lifelong outcomes.

Why

In more and more ways each year, NAMI provides help and hope to individuals and families facing mental illness. Our classes, support groups and outreach programs are always free, and are run by trained volunteers who share their own lived experiences. We are also a phone call (or office drop-in) away for those seeking help in navigating the local health care, school, hospital and/or court systems.

Needs

Additional work space, renovations to our 900-square-foot office, and marketing assistance for programs serving middle- and high-school students and parents of minor children.

Did You Know

Approximately 1 in 5 adults will experience a mental illness this year.

“NAMI’s a safe place to learn and teach others. It’s helped us come out of the darkness and heal.” — Chaundra Rush, support group facilitator
