Important Notice
NAMI’s programs are designed to provide consumers and family members with a greater understanding of mental illness and with strategies for living with and recovering from serious mental illness. Program participants will worry less, and feel empowered to advocate for better treatment and services for themselves and for family members.NAMI programs should not be used to replace the specialized training and professional judgment of mental health professionals. We cannot, and will not, assume the role of a physician or therapist.
Self-care information, and family and peer support are valuable assets in working through the many challenges faced by individuals and families who have been touched by serious mental illness, but they are not substitutes for professional assistance. Please seek immediate professional help or dial 9-1-1:
• if you or a family member have thoughts of suicide or of harming others,
• if you or a family member are unable to provide self-care for essentials of daily living,
• if you or a family member are abusing substances, and/or
• If you or someone else is in danger of being harmed.
