Welcome to NAMI-AMICO

Thank you for visiting NAMI-AMICO, Inc.  We are the Orange County, NY affiliate of NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raising awareness and building a community of hope for all of those in need. We support families/caregivers or anyone concerned with mental illness.  We provide free educational courses for families, as well as advocate for legislation and the rights of people with mental illness. We hold special events throughout the year for our families and their loved ones.  Our regular monthly meeting is usually the second Monday of the month 7-9 p.m. at the office of Mental Health Association of Orange County Inc. (MHA), 73 James P. Kelly Way (formerly known as County Highway 108), Middletown, NY 10940.

*Location and times for July, October and December will be announced. There are no NAMI-AMICO meetings in February and August. Click on the MEETINGS link in the left column for specific dates/times of upcoming meetings.
