NAMI Jefferson County (NAMI JeffCo) is a nonprofit affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Since 2005 our mission has been to empower families and individuals living with mental illness to better understand and cope with the special challenges posed by this kind of illness. We offer free self-help support groups, provide free education and training, create awareness of issues related to mental illness and work to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness through free public events. We advocate for change and improved services for those living with mental illness and their family members, care givers and support persons. To find other NAMI affiliates go to NAMI.org.
NAMI JeffCo offers free drop-in Family Support Groups and Writing Workshops, an annual Free Film Event, and more. See our Education & Events pages for more information.

Thank You for Making NAMI Jeffco’s Annual FREE Film Event a Success!
Here is a photo of us honoring our ‘Pioneers’ – those who started NAMI JeffCo ten years ago. We are immensely grateful to these women for their dedication and hard work! They each received an award, a gift certificate, and a rose…plus everyone’s deep gratitude.
With simple steps, and a little understanding, every challenge can become an opportunity for personal growth. Anthony Robbins
