In the US, one in five people — and one in three young adults — reports living with a mental illness. And tragically, suicide is the second leading cause of death in teens and young adults. NAMI MC envisions a future where all people affected by mental illness live healthy, fulfilling lives supported by a community that cares. Trained volunteers with lived experience lead classes and support groups grounded in established, evidence-based resources, helping individuals, families, and caregivers access critical information and feel less alone. In addition to its free programs, NAMI MC's communities of peers conduct advocacy and outreach to break the silence around mental health and remove the stigma that prevents many from seeking the help they need. Feedback from the thousands who have benefited is overwhelmingly positive: simply put, this place saves lives.
