We are the Wichita Falls affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the only organization that is dedicated to improving the lives not just of individuals with mental illness, but of the entire family. We advocate for access to services, treatment, support and research as well as raising awareness and building a community of hope for all those in need.
Mental illness is a medical condition that disrupts a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others, and daily functioning. Just as diabetes is a disorder of the pancreas, mental illnesses are medical conditions that often result in a diminished capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of life.
Recovery is a holistic process that includes traditional elements of mental health and aspects that extend beyond medication. Recovery from serious mental illness also includes attaining, and maintaining, physical health as another cornerstone of wellness.
There are a number of ways that you can make a difference! One of the best ways to help is to become a member of NAMI and join the thousands of Americans dedicated to improving the lives of people living with mental illness. Giving a tax deductible gift is also a great way to ensure that NAMI is able to continue to work for people affected by mental illness.
