Families meeting the challenge of mental illness.

Join NAMI Mercer or Renew Membership


Dear Friends,

Janet Haag.February is Membership month for NAMI Mercer! When you join or renew your membership, you become part of a grassroots network of men and women across the country whose hands-on work improves the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. You add your voice to the voices of all those who are advocating for changes in public policy and in service systems to be more responsive to those in need. Group impact tends to be stronger than that of any one individual, so even if you are unable to be directly involved, your membership lends credence to everything NAMI Mercer does.

A very talented college student who volunteered with us over the summer noted:

My personal experience with a mental illness and my work with NAMI Mercer have given me perspective. I believe I have an obligation to overcome my fears—not just as an obligation to myself, and my family and friends, but to all those suffering from mental illness and to their loved-ones and caregivers who suffer with them. Mental illness is an insidious, consuming, traumatic and all-too-common disease but with proper care and support, it can interfere less with daily life and even serve as inspiration for positive change.
~ Caitlin

Now is the time for a national conversation about mental illness.

Why? Because we have reached the critical tipping point where real change is possible.

Our education and advocacy efforts have achieved a heightened public awareness; the subject of mental illness no longer is taboo, and we are winning the battle against stigma that prevents so many from seeking treatment.

And who is better suited to lead the conversation than NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

NAMI is the largest grassroots mental health movement in the nation, with affiliates in every state.

By joining NAMI Mercer, you also join NAMI New Jersey and NAMI National. All three organizations provide meaningful and much-needed free services to families and individuals facing mental illnesses. 

We hope that you will act today, and be part of the alliance!


NAMI Mercer is a membership organization with an emphasis on the quality of relationships, community building, and opportunities to bond and connect with other members.
