Find Help, Find Hope

Upcoming Programs and Events

NAMI Greater Cleveland is dedicated to empowering persons affected by mental illness and their family members to achieve a better quality of life by providing them with support, education, referral and advocacy.

NAMIWalks 2015 presented by The Cleveland Clinic was held Saturday, August 29, 2015 at Edgewater Park. Over 1,000 people joined us to walk and raise funds for NAMI Greater Cleveland as part of Cleveland’s largest mental health event.  Thank you to to our sponsors and everyone who participated. Your support helps NAMI Greater Cleveland to continue providing support groups, educational programs, advocacy and resources for individuals with mental illness and their family members, all offered at no cost.

Fundraising continues, so there is still time to reach out to your family members, friends,
co-workers, asking them to make a donation to your Walk Team. 

Details on our fundraising efforts and pictures to follow soon!
