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 (425) 298-5315.

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.
