Who We Are
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.
What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation's leading voice on mental health. Today, we are an alliance of more than 600 local Affiliates and 48 State Organizations who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.
Since 1983, NAMI Bucks County has been a beacon of help and hope to all people affected by mental health conditions. From humble beginnings in a small library to becoming Bucks County's leading voice on mental health and recovery, we have been at the forefront of the mental health movement providing support, education and advocacy to ensure people in the Greater Philadelphia area get the care they need and deserve.
NAMI Bucks County PA is dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness through recovery-focused support, education and advocacy.
NAMI envisions a world where all people affected by mental illness live healthy, fulfilling lives supported by a community that cares.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
At NAMI, we believe a diverse, inclusive and equitable organization (or Alliance) is one where all employees, volunteers and members — regardless of gender, race, gender identity, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation, education, disability, veteran status or other dimension of diversity — feel valued and respected.
We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach and to providing equal opportunity for employment, participation and advancement in all programs and worksites.
