NAMI - (National Alliance of Mental Illness)NAMI Fort Bend is a grassroots organization whose mission is to improve the lives of those affected by mental illness. NAMI Fort Bend offers bi-weekly support groups meetings and educational classes on mental illness. Our membership consists of persons with mental illness, the families and friends of people affected by mental illnesses, and mental health professionals. We know what a struggle life can be when mental illness strikes. We’ve been there!
If you or someone in your family has a mental illness, we have much in common and can help. Join with us in the community of hope we have found through NAMI Fort Bend's circle of support, education, and advocacy.
On the second and fourth Thursday of each month, Social Concerns workroom, 7:00pm, the NAMI meetings offer a forum to exchange ideas and mutual support among caregivers of loved ones who suffer from mental illness (personality or mood disorders, depression, bi-polar, etc.).
An offsite support group for those older clients who are diagnosed can be found via DBSA. There are no charges for services.
