About NAMI WRV

 

Our mission is to support the mental health of our community members through education, support, and advocacy. The families and members of NAMI WRV are here to help! We offer hope and understanding to anyone faced with a mental health challenge.

Our vision is to support mental health wellness in the Wood River Valley. We aim to link community members with local health resources to educate the community on mental health topics, cultivate the acceptance of mental health challenges, and foster inclusion for individuals, families, and friends.

Mental health challenges are brain disorders that are biologically based medical problems. Untreated, they can cause severe disturbances in thinking, feeling, and relating. This results in a substantially diminished capacity for dealing with the ordinary demands of life. Mental health challenges can affect persons of any age and occur in any family. They are not caused by bad parenting and not evidence of weakness of character.
