Our Advocates serve both people with mental illness and family members. Additionally, advocates assist professionals, students, or other individuals from the community seeking information. Their role is to assist in learning about metal health and utilizing the mental health system already in place in our community. Advocates can provide peer support, but not as a substitute for professional counseling when indicated.

Advocates do not attempt to act in place of the professionals with whom our clients work. If NAMI of Southern Arizona cannot assist an individual within the context of our mission, an advocate will always attempt to make an appropriate referral for the individual.
Our Advocates are available M-Th, 10am-3pm by calling our office at 520-622-5582.
