NAMI of Waukesha County is Dedicated to Helping
Those Affected by Mental Health Conditions.

Since 1982, NAMI Waukesha has worked to improve the understanding of mental health conditions and share the hope of recovery by offering information, support, education and advocacy services. We strive to enlighten the public with the goal of erasing the stigma, guilt, shame, fear, ignorance and discrimination that negatively impacts the lives of people affected by mental health conditions.

We offer support groups, educational classes, Chapter 51 court support and advocacy, homeless outreach for individuals affected by mental illness through the Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness Program, one-on-one support/education, monthly educational meetings and current information on legislation pertinent to mental health.
