If you're seeking support or guidance on managing mental health challenges, whether for yourself or a loved one. Please know, you're not alone in this journey. At NAMI North Texas, we recognize the importance of having a supportive community to lean on during difficult times.

We're here to walk alongside you and your family, supporting and enriching your unique path towards mental wellness. Our peer-led programs offer free education, skills training, and invaluable support. Dedicated volunteers from our community passionately lead these initiatives, making a meaningful impact every step of the way.

But beyond offering services, we're dedicated to fostering a community—a community where mental health is openly discussed, stigma is dismantled, and support is readily available to ALL. Because we believe everyone deserves access to the resources they need to thrive.

So, we invite you to join our movement. Together, let's strive towards creating a stronger, more compassionate community for mental health support in North Texas.
