NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) is America's largest grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. We advocate, educated and assist with meeting the needs of people suffering from mental health issues and challenges.
By November 1991 the first of six duplex apartments was completed and occupied. Currently, NAMI of Central GA sits on 7 acres of property that includes a group home, a duplex apartment, warehouse, offices, a greenhouse, botanical gardens, classroom areas, and a beautiful landscape.
We facilitate support groups and provide resources and tools to assist individuals and families with a lifelong path to continued recovery. We provide outreach services, life skills training, community outreach in the form of suicide prevention, support groups for individuals and caretakers, group sessions, information and referrals, housing and supportive tools and resources to help deal with the challenges that come with having a mental illness.
NAMI Central Georgia also serves as a training facility to many interns looking to expand their knowledge on mental illness. NAMICG has trained interns from the University of Georgia, Fort Valley State University, Mercer University, Nova Southwestern University, Albany State University plus many more.
Since 1999 we have been the only NAMI affiliated in state, non-profit, licensed and owned, group housing facility permanent or long-term group in the state of Georgia. We serve the entire state and welcome out of state clientele. We welcome vets who have honored our country by serving in the military. Many clients are referrals from the VA Hospital in addition to young adults, mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers from many walks of life who are unable to live on their own.
Due to limited funding for mental health and delayed VA reimbursements, monetary donations from the public help us keep our doors open. Consider donating TODAY. Help us advocate, support and educate others about mental illness and challenges.
