those in need
COMPREHENSIVE CRIMINAL JUSTICE (CCJ) PROGRAM
NAMI LCH believes too many people with mental illnesses and/or co-occurring substance use disorders who commit non-violent offenses end up in the criminal justice system inappropriately. We advocates for public policies that enhance both public and law enforcement officer safety, promote people with these disorders will re-offend or have repeated involvement with law enforcement and the criminal justice system.
For more than 25 years, NAMI of Lee, Charlotte & Hendry Counties (NAMI LCH) has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for family members and individuals struggling with mental illness.
NAMI LCH is leading the way in raising awareness and educating the public, advocating to improve the lives of people affected by mental illness and helping people to access the care they need. Find out how you can help through donations of money and time.

BEGINS WITH YOU
The goal of NAMI LCH’s CWC Program is to work toward a statewide system of care utilizing already identified Promising Practices in Early Childhood Mental Health as an approach to plan, coordinate and deliver the services and supports vital to children and youth with emerging-to-serious mental health concerns, as well as their families.
Our support groups are free of charge, peer-led support group for adults living with mental illness. You will gain insight from hearing the challenges and successes of others, and the groups are led by NAMI-trained facilitators who've been there.
I go to a support group and discuss my struggles with people just like me. Not everyone will understand, but as a future social worker and survivor, it’s my duty to share my story.
