NAMI of DuPage

Bio
The mission of NAMI Du Page is to provide support, advocacy, and education in order to improve the quality of life of individuals with mental illness and their families.

Receiving a diagnosis of mental illness is often scary, confusing, and overwhelming for individuals and their loved ones. NAMI Du Page is available as a safety net and a place to learn about, understand, and support individuals and their families as they strive to find new balance and focus on their life journeys. The works of art and jewelry you see here were created as part of the journey of recovery and hope by participants in the Social/Recreation programs of NAMI Du Page.

Additionally, NAMI Du Page provides various Education and Support Programs to promote and encourage optimal physical and mental well-being and reduce stigma, alienation, and isolation. These programs are held at the Du Page County Community Center and other locations throughout Du Page County.
