About Us

The mission of NAMI Evansville is to help make life better for people living with mental illnesses, their families and caregivers. We approach this through support, education, and advocacy. 

NAMI Evansville started in the late 1980s. We were primarily a support group until family education classes were offered for the first time in 1996. 

We are represented on the board of directors of NAMI Indiana, where we learn of new, exciting and innovative projects happening elsewhere in our state.

NAMI (national) offers support to the local and state affiliates. The NAMI website www.nami.org is popular and well respected. Be sure to check it out.

We invite you to join our affiliate or call with your questions 812-423-4333 or email Diane Arneson at namievansville@gmail.com
