NAMI CLACKAMAS is a grassroots organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for everyone impacted by mental health issues through support, education, and advocacy.
Bottom Line for Portland
Peer support for mental health is essential to recovery for both the individual and those who support them. Every year, NAMI Clackamas provides hundreds of people in crisis with a lifeline to critical services and supports through people who have ‘been there’. All programs and services are totally barrier-free – no diagnosis, no referral, no insurance, no cost, no judgement.
“I cannot recommend NAMI Clackamas enough. They were a turning point for our family and one that I wish we had discovered earlier in our daughter's diagnosis. We constantly turn to lessons we learned to help us navigate her illness and provide her the support she needs. And sometimes, you just need the reassurance that you are not in the fight alone and that others are traveling the same rough road that you are and making it work."
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Stigma and the resulting discrimination tragically affects those with mental health conditions resulting in houselessness, hopelessness, and often suicide, especially in marginalized and vulnerable populations. NAMI Clackamas provides education, support, and advocacy for anyone impacted by a mental health condition including specific services for the Latinx and LGBTQIA2S+ populations.
