Review for NAMI NATIONAL ALLIANCE FOR THE MENTALLY ILL PLYMOUTH AREA, Marshfield, MA, USA
NAMI Plymouth Area, Inc was founded in 1987 and has offered support and education through the family-to-family sharing that has always been a NAMI standard. The volunteer teachers and facilitators are trained with curriculums that are included on SAMSHA's National registry of evidence-based programs. When a family member was diagnosed with a mental illness, we found the medical and therapeutic care systems confusing and sometimes inappropriate. The NAMI members shared their own successes and some of the approaches and processes that were not self evident. From wandering in the weeds, our family began to find help and hope. I am a family, volunteer and board member in this organization. NAMI volunteers advocate, educate and support.
