NAMI Cape Cod & The Islands serves the families and friends of people with a mental illness as well as individuals who have a mental illness by providing support, education, and advocacy. For more information please visit www.nami.org/sites/capecod.

Description:
We help those affected by mental illness through support groups, free educational programs, speaker events and representing our constituencies on mental health issues at the local and state level. We are an affiliate of both our state organization NAMI Massachusetts (www.namimass.org) and our national organization NAMI based in Washington, D.C. (www.nami.org).

History:
NAMI Cape Cod & The Islands was founded in July, 1982 under the name AMICUS, which stood for Alliance for the Mentally Ill to Create Understanding and Support. That year Edie and Leo Perlstein called together a small group of family members at the urging of their daughter's doctor. The driving force was that family members of people with mental illness had no information and support resources to help them with their loved one's illness. Over the years it became affiliated with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
