About Us

NAMI Southwest Washington is an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the largest grassroots mental health organization in the country. We currently serve Clark, Cowlitz, Skamania, and Wahkiakum counties. As an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization, NAMI SW WA has access to the excellent educational resources of the national organization and the independent status to create and implement our own innovative programs to serve our local community.

NAMI SW WA advocates for access to services, treatment, and support for individuals and families struggling with mental health challenges; we offer our services at no charge. We are steadfast in our commitment to raising awareness and building our community of hope for all those in need through education, support, and advocacy. We provide unique mental health services that otherwise are unavailable or inaccessible to many individuals and families.
