Our Mission
The mission of the National Alliance on Mental Illness Western Slope (NAMIws) is to provide education, support 
and advocacy for people affected by a mental illness and their families.



NAMI Western Slope is dedicated to building better lives for the Western Slope residents and their families who are affected by any number of mental illnesses - schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, PTSD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, borderline personality disorder, panic disorder and others.

We do this by providing: 

-- Free educational classes about mental illness to the community; 
-- Providing support groups for those with mental illness and their families;
-- through political advocacy for all concerned   

NAMI Colorado has a new Law Line, targeting these six areas:

--Involuntary civil commitment
--Criminal cases
--Special education
--Employment
--Trusts, guardianships, special needs planning, Medicaid
--Social Security disability
