Resources and Referrals

We provide a free, wallet-sized Resource Card that lists contact information for critical services for people impacted by mental illness in the greater Seattle area, and are updated annually. We distribute these guides at speaking engagements, classes, and other NAMI Seattle events. They are also available for mental health providers and agencies upon request. Also available in Spanish!

NAMI Seattle does not offer any direct provider services, but our Helpline is available to help you find a provider. If you have insurance, the simplest way to find out who is covered in your network is to call your insurance and ask them for a list. If you don’t have insurance, cannot afford the co-pay, or are looking for someone with specific experience, the resources below are common suggestions. You can also contact our Helpline by calling (206) 783-9264 or texting (206) 207-7765.

Addiction Resource was founded in 2014 to provide a community for those recovering from addiction and to help patients find the highest quality care for a successful recovery. Our goal is to provide resources to help patients and their loved ones so that they may stay on the road to recovery, and can successfully overcome addiction for life. We believe in our ability to help improve the lives of others, and belief is what motivates us to educate and support our readers every day.

Addiction Resource is not a treatment center and does not accept payments or advertising offers. Instead, we work to provide free resources to help people better understand their addiction and motivate them to make the first step in seeking support.

Roadmap to Mental Health

Roadmap to Mental Health is a resource guide for anyone navigating the mental health system in the greater Seattle area. Fully updated for 2017, Roadmap is available now, in print and as an eBook on Lulu!

Resource Library

Did you know that NAMI Seattle has a resource library of 650+ books that our members are welcome to borrow? We have all kinds of books — informational guides, memoirs, research updates, novels and more. You can browse our collection online at Goodreads (we regularly add new titles, so check back often!). If you’d like to borrow a book, make sure your membership is current, give us a call to make sure the book you want isn’t checked out to someone else, and come on down to our office!

We also love to share reviews by our members of any books in our library that you’ve read! If you’ve read something in our library collection, you are welcome to email us your book reviews (300 words or less) to be shared on Goodreads to help other readers learn more about these books.
