The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation's largest grassroots mental health advocacy organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness. Education, support, advocacy and research are central to NAMI's national, state and local activities and goals. NAMI offers, at no cost to participants, a variety of peer-led education courses and support programs for family members, individuals with a diagnosis and the general public. These include Family to Family, Peer to Peer, and NAMI Connection, among others. {{NAMI FaithNet | http://nami.org/faithnet}}, one of many educational outreach initiatives, is an interfaith resource network recognizing the value of faith in recovery and equipping clergy and congregations to welcome and support people impacted by mental illness.
