The mission of NAMI Orange County is to provide emotional support, education and resources for families and individuals affected by mental illness.
Our goals end discrimination, remove prejudice and develop community acceptance of mental disorders as serious neurobiological illnesses – NOT moral flaws!
We aim to:
- Reduce the emotional pain of families and the tragic loss of human resources caused by severe mental disorders.
- Enable families to help their loved one to maintain control of their lives, to be strong and productive, and support them in their recovery.
- Educate and assist the families of the mentally ill to help their loved ones live with dignity and develop to the highest level of which each is capable.
And Eliminating Stigma!
