Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission

The mission of NAMI North Carolina is to provide support, education, advocacy, and public awareness so that all affected by mental illness can build better lives.

Our Vision

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. Ultimately, we envision a day when prevention or a cure is found.

Our Approach

Advocate at the county, state and national levels for non-discriminatory access to quality healthcare, housing, education and employment for people with mental illness. Educate the public about mental illness. Work to eliminate the stigma of mental illness. Advocate for increased funding for research into the causes and treatment of mental illness.

Non-Discrimination Statement

Through education, awareness, advocacy, and support, NAMI North Carolina represents the interests of all North Carolinians who are affected by mental health conditions, regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, language, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
