Welcome to NAMI Hawaii. We Invite YOU to be a Part of Our Community.

We are NAMI Hawaii the state organization of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans living with mental illness and their families. Founded in 1979, NAMI has become the nation’s voice on mental illness. With organizations and affiliates in every state, NAMI effectively provides advocacy, research, support, and education about mental illness.

Established in 1991, NAMI Hawaii State is also dedicated to improving the quality of life of individuals and families affected by mental illnesses. Through support, education, advocacy, and awareness we improve the lives of people in Hawaii who live with mental illness. We serve our community by empowering these people to confront the profound injustices brought on by the difficulties they are forced to endure. Along with our supporters and volunteers we work to chart a course to meaningful change in Hawaii and a path to recovery.
