Mental health problems are very common. One in five American adults and youth are affected, so someone you know and care about suffers from a mental illness. Because of generosity from people just like you, NAMI Southern Arizona has been able to serve the Tucson community since 1983, providing no-cost mental health advocacy, education and support to all affected by mental illness. Mental illness is like any other illness, with proper care, it can be treated and managed, and recovery is possible.
