National Alliance on Mental Illness National Convention


The NAMI National Convention is one of the largest community gatherings of mental health advocates in the United States. Each year, our convention connects and inspires people looking for resources, research, support services and recovery strategies. Join us as we embrace our theme — Together Toward Tomorrow — and celebrate NAMI’s 40 years of support, education and advocacy.

  • The country’s keenest minds and savviest policymakers offering strategies and tactics to effectively advocate for changing the mental health system in our nation.
  • Abundant networking opportunities to learn from peers about how we can improve the lives of all people affected by mental illness and their families.
  • Inspiration, innovation and an exhilarating four days in Atlanta.
