SPECIAL NOTICES:

The NAMI Greater Indianapolis Recovery and Advocacy Council is currently in the process of revival. The Recovery and Advocacy Council's mission is

“We are here to empower and provide a voice to those who are diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder. We will provide understanding, educate the general public, and establish a support system for each other. We will promote recovery as it is defined by the individual.”

We plan on keeping to this mission through this process. Keep an eye out for more information.

Meanwhile, the NAMI Indiana Peer Council, whose focus is on advocacy and education, is in the process being revamped. Again, keep an eye out for more information!
