NAMI Minnesota Affiliates  

NAMI Minnesota and its local affiliate groups work to better the lives of people living mental illnesses and their families throughout  Minnesota. Most local affiliates meet on a monthly basis to share information, learn about issues related to mental illnesses and advocate for the needs of people in their communities. Affiliates are staffed by volunteers. Please allow time for a response. See updated State Map of NAMI Affiliates.
