Mental illness affects everyone. Nearly 60 million Americans experience a mental health condition every year. Regardless of race, age, religion or economic status, mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in four adults and one in 10 children across the United States.
NAMI Tarrant County is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of persons with brain disorders (mental illness) and their families. NAMI Tarrant County is an affiliate of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
People living with mental illness need help and hope: they need a community that supports them, their families and their recovery. Because mental illness devastates the lives of so many Americans, NAMI works every day to save every life.
