About NAMI Greater Boston


We invite you come out and meet us.

We are all touched by mental illness. We join together  — no matter where you live; what language you speak; whether you are family members, friends, peers or caregivers  — to share our lived experience with mental illness.

  • We are here to support you and your family member to meet the challenges of mental illness or mental health issues,” says Roy L, a volunteer leader in Dorchester, Mattapan, Roxbury.


  • “If you or a loved one feels overwhelmed by the challenge, good news, you are not alone. We can help you navigate through,” says Steve R, a volunteer from Jamaica Plain.


  • We share stories of recovery and supporting each other,” says Ewa P, a volunteer from Roslindale.


  • For many, talking about this can be a very touchy subject–Not Us!”


  • We form a community that welcomes all.
  • We learn together, share information, understanding, & experiences.
  • We advocate together.
  • We provide NAMI education and support programs in the greater Boston area.
  • We are all volunteers.
