Find a Local NAMI

During tax season, you have the ability to make a positive impact within your community. By simply going to the Contributions page on your California Income Tax Return and checking the box entitled “National Alliance on Mental Illness California Voluntary Tax Contribution Fund,” you can help fund our partnership with local law enforcement to safely interact with individuals experiencing a mental health crisis through Crisis Intervention Training (CIT).


This week, our CEO, Jessica Cruz, celebrates 10 years with NAMI California.

“In ten years, I have met amazing people that I now call friends; I have struggled but have grown out of it; and I have accepted that we can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.  I am looking forward to many more years in continuing to fight alongside warriors to make sure ALL people impacted by mental illness are seen, heard and served.”

Thank you for your tireless efforts and leadership!















We are excited to share NAMI California’s Year 2 (2018-2019) Annual State of the Community Reports (ASOCR) on Diverse Communities & Families.
