About NAMI Placer County
At the heart of NAMI’s mission is our grassroots and the sharing of information with people with mental illness, their families, friends, mental health professionals, and the general public. NAMI strives to offer hope, reform and health to our American community through support, education , and advocacy efforts. Research is constantly providing us with new information about the brain and the nature of mental illnesses and, consequently, more effective treatments. This web site can greatly assist in our efforts to protect our greatest human asset – our beautiful minds.
We are a local affiliate of NAMI (National) www.nami.org and NAMI California.
