NAMI Greater Longview
Welcome to NAMI Greater Longview!
We will begin offering programs and support groups in Spring 2020!
In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you and get you involved! Please volunteer in a leadership capacity, get trained to facilitate one of our upcoming programs, help us spread the word in our community, or lend us a venue to have a community meeting or event!
NAMI Greater Longview is dedicated to improving the lives of all those living with a mental health condition and the lives of those who love them. We aim to ensure acceptance of and treatment mental health conditions, and advocate for more person-centered supports for mental well-being and recovery.
Please remember we are volunteer-led by individuals who have a personal relationship with a mental health condition either through our personal experiences or our experiences with a loved one. We are not medical professionals, cannot give medical advice, and do not provide any medical care, even acute care. If you or someone you love is experiencing a mental health crisis, please call 911 or Community Healthcore’s crisis line 24 hours a day 7 days a week at 1-800-832-1009.
Online Support Groups:
NAMI Texas’ online support groups are a place for people affected by a mental health condition – whether it’s a person who lives with a mental health condition or a family member, friend or caregiver whose loved one is living with a mental health condition.

LEAD A CLASS. CHANGE A LIFE!
Across our area, trained NAMI volunteers are needed to bring peer-led programs to a wide variety of community settings, from churches to schools to businesses. With the unique understanding of people with lived experience, these programs and support groups provide outstanding free education, skills training and support. We are looking forward to resuming and adding more support groups, classes and presentations in the fall. In order to accomplish this, we need you to train with us! Trainings are easy and can be done outside of work hours. Please contact us to learn more information about leading one of the programs that are greatly needed in our area!
