Find Help. Find Hope.

NAMI Missoula is an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness and of NAMI Montana; we are located at 202 Brooks Street (Room 210) in Missoula. We provide education, advocacy, and support for individuals and families affected by mental illness, and we work with like-minded groups in the community to combat stigma and stereotypes about mental illness. NAMI Missoula offers free weekly support groups, free education classes, a resource library, and much more.  

The NAMI Missoula office is staffed by volunteers as available; office hours are scheduled by appointment only. We can be reached by phone at 406-880-1013 or by email at namimissoula@gmail.com. Our mailing address is: NAMI Missoula, PO Box 5413, Missoula MT 59806.

We would like to recognize and thank the local businesses who allow us to place our “NAMI Missoula” donation containers on their premises. The money collected in these containers goes directly to our Benevolent Fund; through our “co-pay” voucher program, in partnership with local mental health centers, it helps individuals with limited financial resources purchase necessary psychiatric medications.

Businesses that have NAMI Missoula donation containers are:

Rockin’ Rudy’s / Orange Street Food Farm / Savmor Drug / Fuddrucker’s / Conoco Station (6265 Mullan Road)

Our thanks to all these merchants and to the generous people of Missoula!
