Members of the largest, family-based mental advocacy organization in Pennsylvania, join other NAMI members in networking and learning how to have an impact. You will have early access to current information about research on the brain and its systems.
The NAMI Scranton and NAMI Pennsylvania offices will lead you to an extensive lending library with books, brochures, audio and video tapes about serious mental illness, its causes and treatments, and coping skills.
NAMI Pennsylvania offers educational services, seminars, and workshops at reduced prices to its members.
The latest news on the medical horizon for causes and treatments, research and medications is published in The Alliance, NAMI's statewide newsletter mailed quarterly to members. The Alliance also includes up-to-date information on mental health issues such as hospital downsizing and managed care.
Information on issues associated with serious mental illness on the national front is published in the NAMI newsletter The Advocate, which is also a benefit of membership in the state Alliance.
