National Alliance on Mental Illness of Minnesota

A nonprofit organization


What a powerful feeling.  It’s a strong, positive emotion we feel when the future feels bright and attainable.  Hope can keep us going in the most challenging times, and we’ve certainly experienced some difficult moments in the past year.

Will you make a life-changing gift today?

NAMI Minnesota has been diligently working to meet the needs of our community and beyond. This has only happened because of the support of people like you. When you give to NAMI Minnesota, you help bring light to children and adults with mental illnesses and their families—a gift that is truly priceless.

What have we accomplished together?

  • We doubled the number of classes for family members who have an adult relative with a mental illness, reaching 200% more people.
  • Through the Children’s System of Care grant, we were able to educate 470 county staff and 184 families about the importance of family driven care.
  • Mental Health 101, a culturally diverse class, reached 574 people, a 350% increase over last year.
  • Created a one-hour class called “Minding Your Mental Health During COVID” and provided it 115 times to over 4,000 people.
  • Presented our program “Ending the Silence” to over 4,000 high school students.
  • Doubled the number of the suicide prevention class, “QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer),” and presented it to 1,227 people.
  • Educated 430 teachers on mental health warning signs in youth and teens.
  • Executive Director, Sue Abderholden, was interviewed 55 times and NAMI Minnesota became the “go to” organization for the media on issues related to mental illnesses and the mental health system.
  • Officially launched our endowment with $250,000 to ensure NAMI Minnesota’s capacity to provide training and community care in perpetuity.

With your continued support, we can continue to do all this, and more!  Thank you again for supporting NAMI Minnesota during Give to the Max Day! Your donation of any size makes a big difference!
