Our Mission:

NAMI-New York State is dedicated to provide support and education of families of people with serious and persistent brain disorders (mental illness).  NAMI-New York State advocates for better services in the public system of care, seeks to educate the public about the myths of mental illness to eradicate stigma, and supports brain research.

1. To improve the quality of life for our relatives that suffer from brain disorders (mental illness).

2. To provide a forum where parents, spouses, siblings, adult offsprings, and friends of
    individuals with brain disorders (mental illness) may share experiences and give emotional
    support to one another.

3. To protect the rights and promote the welfare, comfort, and well being of individuals with
    brain disorders (mental illness), particularly those who are too ill to speak for themselves.

4. To encourage and assist in the development of improved treatment, housing, care and,
    employment for individuals with brain disorders (mental illness).

5. To foster the advancement of research leading to more effective treatment of brain disorders
    (mental illness).

6. To work for an enlightened and more sympathetic public understanding of mental illness with
    the hope of diminishing the stigma and discrimination associate with the biological brain
    disorders.

7. To undertake any activity that future experience may indicate is of benefit to individuals with
    brain disorders (mental illness) and their families including the encouragement of membership
    in the organization by local groups or at large members.
