Who We Are NAMI Davidson is the direct service provider of services for NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) in the Greater Nashville Area. The nonprofit 501.c.3 grassroots organization is led by and serves people whose lives are impacted by severe and persistent mental health issues. We are an independent affiliate to the state and national organizations.
Who We Serve
Mental illness and co-occurring disorders cross all gender, age, ethnic, economic, social and cultural boundaries. Each year we reach out to over 3000 individuals. We serve individuals and their loved ones encouraging each to reach their potential in mental wellness. Faith communities, justice systems, area agencies, veterans organizations and legislative advocacy are all part of the annual agenda.
How We Help
Mental illness can be very isolating. Fear, stigma and lack of access to services prevent people from getting help. We offer hope for recovery through free, peer-led confidential support groups, education classes and our information and refererral Helpline. We combat stigma and promote understanding through our In our Own Voice and In the Spirit of Awareness peer presentations. Our free education series is held each year between September and April with Vanderbilt University.
