NAMI Valley of the Sun
NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Valley of the Sun is the affiliate that operates in Maricopa County. Our goal is to bring knowledge and awareness to the community at no cost to them, in various forms. We teach several classes in the community, such as NAMI Family to Family – 12 week course for family members and friends of adults living with mental illness. NAMI Basics – 6 week course for family members and caregivers of children and adolescents living with mental health or behavioral problems. We have NAMI In Our Own Voice presentation 1.5 hour presentation with two people in recovery and a DVD to explain their road from the beginning till they reached recovery. Very powerful presentation. We attend health fairs and resource fairs with all our brochures on mental illness and upcoming classes.
We are here to provide knowledge and support at no cost to anyone – we have NAMI Family Support groups all over the valley, and NAMI Connection group in North Phoenix for those living with mental illness.
Keeping in mind we are able to do all of this because of the generous donations of our donors and sponsors such as Steve and Debbie of Denco Dental Construction.
Thanks to the Support and Generosity of Sponsors & Donors like Denco Dental Construction, NAMI Valley of the Sun Members helped almost 15,000 people in Maricopa County.
