NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI OW Emerald Coast is our local affiliate servicing Okaloosa County and Walton County Florida.
NAMI OW is an organization dedicated to providing support, advocacy and education for persons with mental illness and their families. We advocate for better quality care, rights and interests of citizens with mental illness and promotes programs and resources directed to medical research, housing, social and vocational rehabilitation and employment. Elimination of the stigmatization attached to mental illness is essential to achieving these goals. Mental illness should not be an obstacle to a full and meaningful life.
