What People are Saying

“You realize that he will never be the same having been through war. I learned how to treat him more as an adult than as a hurt child.”Mother of a Veteran after graduating from a NAMI Family-to-Family class held at a VA clinic

“We are still friends with everyone that was in the class. There’s always and open ear and an open heart and a shoulder to cry on if you need it.” Father of a Veteran after graduating from a NAMI Family-to-Family class held at a VA hospital

NAMI Waco is dedicated to improving the quality of life, supporting recovery and providing awareness to eradicate the misconceptions of those affected by mental illness, including persons living with the mental health diagnosis, family members and friends of persons living with mental illness, and the providers who treat these mental health conditions.
In our envisioned future mental illness will no longer thwart a person’s fulfillment of his or her potential. With early pinpoint diagnoses, interventions and targeted medications and services there is no pervasive disability. Ultimately, we envision a day when prevention or a cure is found.
