The mission of NAMI Colorado is to build communities of recovery and hope by educating, supporting and advocating for individuals affected by mental illness and their families.
NAMI Colorado was formed in 1980 as a grassroots organization serving the needs of people living with a mental illness and their families. We continue the tradition of our grassroots organization by working through local affiliates throughout Colorado. NAMI Colorado provides training, support and technical assistance to our local volunteers and provides a statewide voice on issues related to mental health.
