The mission of NAMI Monroe County is to build a community of allies for individuals living with mental illness in order to eliminate stigma, make connections to resources, and educate the community to harness the power of Hope.
In our envisioned future, mental illness will no longer thwart a person’s fulfillment of his or her potential. With early pinpoint diagnoses, interventions and targeted medications and services there is no pervasive disability.
NAMI Monroe County will be the leading advocate for individuals affected by mental illness, including for the consumer and family involvement in care, treatment, and recovery. NAMI Monroe County will link resources with consumers, family members, and the like with passion and action. Our vision is to create a culture disclosure of an individual’s diagnosis does not have negative consequences or results in stigma. NAMI Monroe County is dedicated to promoting change that will eliminate stigma, preserve dignity, and improve the quality of life.
