We’re here for you

We’re here for you if you’re struggling with your mental health or supporting a loved one. We’re offering our programs in person at our office, 307 W. 38th Street, 8th Fl, Manhattan. You can still access our classes, support groups, and many of our programs virtually.

Your Support Matters

Every day, people contact us and find hope. Dealing with mental illness is not easy – not for the person with the illness, nor for the people in their life. NAMI-NYC gives many people hope for the first time. We can only do that because of YOU.
