 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 / Fresh Market (West Broadway) / Crazy Mike’s (Eastgate Shopping Center) / Conoco Station (6265 Mullan Road)

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

NEW GROUP!! Our “Managing Your Life” group started in January; it meets every Wednesday morning from 10:00 to 11:30 at 202 Brooks, Room 208.
