About Us



What counties do we serve?
Pickaway, Ross, Pike, Fayette and Highland

What do we do?
We educate with classes such as family-to-family, peer-to-peer and NAMI Homefront. We advocate for people with mental illness and their families to get the proper care. And we support those individuals and families with support groups to aid in coping with the mental health issues, and to reduce the stress and stigma that comes with having a mental illness.

What is our mission statement?
NAMI enjoys a reputation as the nation's voice on mental illness. We make that reputation real on a daily basis both as the largest grassroots advocacy organization addressing mental illness, and as the way people whose lives have been affected by mental illness find their individual and collective voice.

Who do I contact to find more information?
You may call Tabitha Cobb, Executive Director, at (740) 851-4242 or e-mail for more information.

When do educational classes start?
As classes become available, they will be posted on this website for each county.

What is the cost?
All services of NAMI of Southern Ohio are free of charge. All we ask is that you fill out a survey at the end of the class.

Who can attend?
Anyone can attend any meeting or educational class.
