About NAMI Northern Kentucky

NAMI Northern Kentucky (NAMI NKY) is affiliate of the National Association on Mental Illness (NAMI), the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

Research shows one in four people experience some sort of mental health issue in his or her lifetime and one in seventeen people live with a serious mental illness that impairs his or her ability to perform daily tasks.  In Northern Kentucky, this ratio equates to approximately 95,000 individuals personally struggling with mental illness.  Added to this number are the thousands of family members and friends affected by the challenges associated with caring for a mentally ill loved one.  With such a significant number of Northern Kentuckians impacted by metal illness, chances are someone in your company falls into one or more of these statistics.

NAMI NKY provides support, education and advocacy for those who live with mental illness and their families, friends and caregivers within the eight-county Northern Kentucky region.



NAMI NKY provides education, support and advocacy for the well-being of all individuals affected by mental illness.
