NAMI Albuquerque serves Albuquerque and the surrounding areas. It was established in the mid-1980s by a small group of individuals who recognized a need for mental health support and education in our communities. NAMI Albuquerque is run entirely by volunteers. We provide support and education programs for peers and family members alike. We are also involved with advocacy and community outreach activities to help educate the public and fight the stigma associated with mental illness
