State & National Info

In July 2016, the National Alliance on Mental Illness selected NAMI Southwestern Pennsylvania to become the official state NAMI organization in Pennsylvania. NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania was chosen as the name for the new state organization.

The designation gives Pennsylvania a unified voice in advancing NAMI’s mission of raising awareness about mental health and providing recovery-focused support, education, and advocacy for people living with mental illness and their loved ones.

NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania is a 501(c)(3) grassroots nonprofit organization certified by the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations (PANO). It is home to several programs in the Southwest region, including the Consumer Action Response Team (CART) of Allegheny County, the Consumer and Family Satisfaction Team of Armstrong and Indiana Counties, and the Adult Advocacy Program in Allegheny County.

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 association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.
