NAMI Jackson County offers understanding,
encouragement and mutual support to all who are faced with a neurobiological
brain disorder of a loved one. Family members learn coping skills
by sharing their experiences and exploring solutions to common problems.
Families learn that they are not alone, the disorder is treatable, and
the illness is not anyone's fault.
NAMI Jackson County educates through meetings,
conferences, and educational
materials for families and professionals. Program meetings feature
speakers and videos on topics that educate our members and the community
about brain disorders and related issues.
NAMI Jackson County brings the needs of persons with a
neurobiological brain disorder and the needs of their families to the
attention of legislators, service providers, medical staff, and the general
public. The organization protects the rights of persons with brain
disorders and actively presses for improved community support services.
