Approximately one in five adults suffers from a diagnosable mental disorder every year. In Broward County, this means about 450,000 people are living with a mental illness.
NAMI Broward’s mission is to bring awareness and programs to Broward County to support a world-class treatment and recovery system for people with mental illness and their families by:
• Providing support to persons with serious brain disorders and to their families
• Educating families and consumers
• Advocating for improved opportunities for housing, rehabilitation, and meaningful jobs
• Supporting public education programs designed to help eliminate the pervasive stigma surrounding severe mental illness
