The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Cape Cod is a grass-roots non-profit organization serving the families and friends of people with mental illness, as well as the individuals who have a mental illness themselves on Cape Cod and The Islands. Programs and Services are provided through Support, Education and Advocacy. We are an affiliate of both NAMI Massachusetts and NAMI National in Washington D.C.

NAMI Cape Cod & The Islands strives to provide an understanding of the broad spectrum of neurological disorders and differences. We provide a network of systems and support groups and educational programming for individuals and their families. We advocate for and support services for the mental wellness of our total constituency. Enlightenment and education of the general public on matters of mental health is part of the ultimate goal.

A twelve week course for family members of individuals with mental illness that teaches participants about various illnesses, medications, empathy, communication skills and self-care.
A six week course similar to Family To Family in concept but directed to parents/caregivers of children and adolescents so as to achieve early intervention on neurological and behavioral issues.
