Available Monday through Thursday, 9am-5pm. Please note: During the COVID crisis, response times may take slightly longer than usual. However, we respond to ALL messages we receive! Email and text are currently the best ways to reach us.

NAMI Seattle operates a mental health referral and information Helpline to connect callers to the support and resources that they need.

*PLEASE NOTE: The Helpline is not a crisis line and we are unable to assist with crisis intervention, although we are happy to refer you to a crisis hotline.*

Support Groups

We host family and social support groups at the NAMI Seattle office and other locations in the greater Seattle area. All groups hosted by NAMI Seattle are free, open to drop-ins, and operate on a peer-support model. Please note: During the COVID crisis, our in-person groups are not currently meeting.
