NAMI Joplin is a nonprofit organization dedicated to breaking the stigma associated with mental illness and for providing information, encouragement, education, and support opportunities to consumers (those afflicted with brain disorders), their families, mental health care providers and the community in Joplin, Missouri and the surrounding area.
We hold weekly support groups for consumers. We also have monthly support groups for families dealing with adult consumers and parents of children and adolescents, and a suicide survivors group.
NAMI Joplin also provides FREE education to families of adult consumers, parents of children and adolescents, and consumers. There is also training available for mental health care front line staff.
NAMI Joplin has trained consumers who are available to speak at community events to tell in their own words about living with mental illness, their experiences and their path to recovery.
