NAMI Racine County is a local organization of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). They seek to improve the quality of life of all individuals affected by mental illness and to promote recovery. NAMI Racine County focuses on three areas that offer reform, health and hope to our community: Advocacy, Education and Support.
They offer various mental health services in Racine. These support services aim to help Racine County residents. There are services available for people of different ages and for a variety of reasons related to mental health. In addition, their resources are available both online and in-person.
Do you have anxiety, depression, PTSD, or know a loved one who is dealing with one or more of these conditions?
Support groups are offered in-person and online. Plan to arrive to support group meetings 5 to 10 minutes before the scheduled start time. In-person events are held at NAMI Racine, 2300 DeKoven Ave. All support groups are free of charge and subject to time changes or cancellations.
