NAMI Blogs are resources for people who are interested in mental health. Our national organization features the latest research, stories of recovery, ways to end stigma and strategies for living well. 

NAMI-sponsored or NAMI websites offering social media interactions:

  • ok2talk.org

    Teens and young adults who live with mental illness can feel hopeless and alone. Many don’t know what’s wrong with them but feel like it’s their fault. Those who understand what is happening fear they can’t be helped. Because of the stigma attached to mental illness, it’s often hard for those suffering and their families and friends to talk about what they’re going through. But help is available, and it works.

    The goal of OK2TALK is to create a community for teens and young adults struggling with mental health problems and encourage them to talk about what they’re experiencing by sharing their personal stories of recovery, tragedy, struggle or hope. Anyone can add their voice by sharing creative content such as poetry, inspirational quotes, photos, videos, song lyrics and messages of support in a safe, moderated space. OK2TALK hopes this is the first step towards getting help and feeling better.

        *NAMI is one of the founding partners of OK2TALK.

  • You Are Not Alone (YANA)
    another NAMI website that is for folks who would like to read others stories or tell their story to help inspire hope and break down stigma
