By appointment or in Ketchum
The members of NAMI-WRV (National Alliance on Mental Illness) are ordinary people in the community who’ve been touched by mental illness.  “When my family started down this path in 1993, we hadn’t a clue where to turn. There wasn’t even a psychiatrist available. We had to educate ourselves about mental illness, find resources ourselves, and support our family member in every way we could ,” says a NAMI member. 
Due to the efforts of our members, NAMI-WRV was  officially organized in 2001 and became an affiliate of NAMI National. From its inception in 1979, NAMI has been dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with mental illness.
NAMI’s  efforts are focused on educating America about mental illness, offering resources to those in need, and insisting that mental illness become a high national priority.
It’s unbelievable how far we’ve come since 1993: dozens of good medications, much greater public awareness, more psychiatrists and pyschologists, movies and books, and internet resources.” she continued. “But we still don’t have a cure, and until we do, we ‘ll be here to provide help to everyone who needs it.”
