NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania has programs, trainings, and events that educate individuals and families about mental health to help them overcome stigma, find treatment, and manage their experience in the most productive way possible.

Programs and Presentations

We offer peer-led education programs and presentations that provide information, skills, and insight about mental health. NAMI progams help individuals and families better understand mental health conditions, coping strategies, communication techniques, and ways to handle crises and relapse. We also provide customized presentations for schools, workplace, and the community.

Mental Health Equity

NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania is part of NAMI National’s Community Health Equity Alliance (CHEA), a program to bring attention to serious mental illness in the Black community. In Allegheny County and across the state, we are forging partnerships with stakeholders in communities disproportionately impacted by racial trauma associated with disparities in mental health care with the goal of achieving equity in mental health treatment and care.
