EDUCATION - SUPPORT - ADVOCACY

NAMI KNOX LICKING COUNTY MAY HAVE THE TOOLS TO HELP YOU! Go to our Program page and check it out. . . . Mental health education and support is very much needed and a vital ingredient in the therapy and support plans of those needing services and their families -- this is what we do. Let us help.

Our programs are available both in Knox and Licking counties and to surrounding areas. Our headquarters is located in downtown Mount Vernon, OH. Mount Vernon is the county seat.  We are surrounded by small villages, and lovely family owned farms.. There are five high schools in the county and not many more elementary schools. We do boast three major four-year college institutions and one two-year Technical college. We also can boast an awesome vocational school, the Knox County Career Center. A "NAMI on Campus" is available at Kenyon College, located in nearby Gambier.

.In all this beauty, mental illness still shows its ugly head and so does suicide!

OUR MISSION: To improve the quality of life for consumers of mental health services, their families and friends, by mutual support, education, advocacy and advancement of research.
