NAMI Cape Cod & The Islands serves individuals and their families who are affected by the broad spectrum of mental illness and neurological disorders through support, education, and advocacy and promotes mental wellness for all.


Our mission is to educate, support, and advocate for mental wellness through partnerships with families and community resources in the building of mentally healthy lives throughout Cape Cod and the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.


Support is provided through local support group meetings, membership meetings, speaker events, and other services provided through our local office at 5 Mark Lane in Hyannis.


Education is provided through classes and programs offered to both family members and individuals with mental illness as well as participation in community activities, resources, and an e-news bulletin.


As a recognized voice on mental illness, legislative advocacy is provided at the local and state levels as well as through the national organization in Arlington, VA.


NAMI Cape Cod & the Islands envisions being instrumental in identifying the mental health needs of the Cape and Islands’ diverse populations and, in collaboration with community partners, envisioning and implementing a comprehensive system that integrates mental health as an essential component of health care that is accessible to all.
