WELCOME TO NAMI JACKSONVILLE FL

We are here to support and improve the quality of life for family members and those living with mental illnesses and co-occurring substance abuse.

WHO WE ARE

The families and members of NAMI Jacksonville are here to help! We offer understanding to anyone concerned about mental illnesses and the treatment of mental illness.

Mental illnesses are brain disorders that are biologically based medical problems. Untreated, they can cause severe disturbances in thinking, feeling and relating. This results in substantially diminished capacity for dealing with the ordinary demands of life. Mental illness can affect persons of any age and occur in any family. They are not caused by bad parenting and not evidence of weakness of character.

Our Vision

Our Vision is that persons with severe and persistent mental illness can recover and lead productive and meaningful lives within their community of choice.

Mission

The Mission of NAMI Jacksonville is to support and improve the quality of life for family members and those living with mental illnesses and co-occurring substance abuse through compassion, education, and advocacy.
