NAMI Marin is an affiliate of NAMI – the National Alliance on Mental Illness. We have been active in Marin since 1971 when a group of interested parents joined together to form the Marin Parents for Mental Recovery. Then as now, recovery is what drives us.
With just one administrative staff person working part-time, we are primarily a volunteer organization. We provide programs and services to people and families living with mental illness. Our NAMI program leaders are trained facilitators who have lived experience of mental illness. They understand the trauma of mental illness, both for the individual and the family.
