The mission of the National Alliance on Mental Illness Chicago is to provide hope and improve the quality of life for those whose lives are affected by mental illness.

NAMI Chicago maintains many important partnerships in the community. Through our education and programming, we work with mental health providers, providers of support services, schools, community based organizations, faith based organizations, law enforcement, the criminal court system, and many others. With these partnerships as the cornerstone of our work, we maintain a robust and up-to-date referral database.
