Welcome to NAMI Dubuque (National Alliance on Mental Illness).
Our mission is to bring stigma-free brain and mental health efforts to the forefront allowing our expanding service areas to be compassionate communities where those with lived and shared experience, can thrive. We focus on education, support and advocacy for peers and their families.
We believe in advocating for those who cannot advocate for themselves and
work collectively to live and build a stigma free community where
mental/brain health services are equitable and sustainable.
We believe in community support, as all of our programs and services are free of charge.
NAMI Dubuque provides interim care (non-clinical) by way of support groups, education classes, materials, presentations and programming using evidence based models.
We strive to be an approachable, accessible nonprofit organization that meets the needs of other agencies through resource sharing and providing emotional support and complementary care
for peers and their families that live within Dubuque, Jones and Delaware counties and surrounding areas.
NAMI Dubuque has been incorporated since 1996 and we are a 501(c)(3).
