The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) HelpLine is a free service that provides information, referrals and support to people living with a mental health condition, family members and caregivers, mental health providers and the public.
A well-trained and knowledgeable team of volunteers, interns and HelpLine staff will respond to your call or message. Many staff members and volunteers live with a mental health condition or provide care and support to a family member or friend. The HelpLine also has volunteer attorneys and legal interns who provide legal expertise or a referral to an attorney in your community.
The NAMI HelpLine can be reached Monday through Friday, 10:00 am–6:00 pm, ET. Or text NAMI to 741741.
