Mental Health in Baltimore

NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) recognizes the unique challenges and opportunities for mental health in Baltimore. In our commitment to fostering a world where everyone affected by mental illness can lead healthy, fulfilling lives, NAMI engages actively in Baltimore City and County.

At NAMI Metropolitan Baltimore, we understand the importance of innovative resources and community education tools. We continue to deliver these tools, backed by the knowledge and support of individuals who have lived experience with mental illness. By offering a supportive community, we aim to empower and guide individuals on their journey to mental wellness. Together, we strive to build a community in Baltimore where mental health is a priority, and no one feels isolated in their struggle.

I'm a Youth or Young Adult

Youth and young adults who live with a mental health condition have different needs than adults. That's why NAMI Metro Baltimore offers programs specifically designed for youth, schools, and the people who care for them.

Healthcare providers are often the first to initiate conversations about mental health with their patients and the people they provide care to. NAMI Metro Baltimore is here to support you as you support your patients.

Prayer Breakfast in West Baltimore

February 29th, 2024 | 9am - 11am

Do you belong to a religious organization in West Baltimore? Or are you passionate about supporting the health and wellness of our community?

One in four people in Baltimore lives with a mental health condition, yet there is an 11 year delay when it comes to accessing mental health care and treatment. In times of crisis, many first turn to their trusted faith leaders before they reach out to mental health care providers.

Join us over breakfast and participate in insightful discussions on the resources you need to support the mental health of your congregation with NAMI Metro Baltimore at the Bon Secours Community Resource Center.
