A Stable Home is Key to Recovery

Donate Today

Dear NAMI Community,

For someone with a mental health condition like Jim’s daughter, being able to live independently is key to recovery. Unfortunately, our country is in the midst of a rental housing crisis and many people with serious mental illnesses struggle to find an affordable place to live. As a result, too many face inappropriate options or even homelessness.

Nearly 1.7 million people with a serious mental illness receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a federal program that provides financial assistance to people with long-term disabilities. For many, it is their only source of income.Studies show that the United States did not have a single housing market where someone living on SSI income alone could afford a safe, decent rental. That means affordable housing for people with mental illness isn’t just a problem in big cities—it’s a problem everywhere.
We need your help to ensure people with serious mental illnesses have a fighting chance at independence and recovery.
 Can I count on you to take these two important actions today?Nearly 1.7 million people with a serious mental illness receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a federal program that provides financial assistance to people with long-term disabilities. For many, it is their only source of income.Studies show that the United States did not have a single housing market where someone living on SSI income alone could afford a safe, decent rental. That means affordable housing for people with mental illness isn’t just a problem in big cities—it’s a problem everywhere.

  1. Sign our petition urging Congress to increase affordable housing and protect rental assistance for people living with serious mental illness.
  2. Give to NAMI today so we can continue to advocate on behalf of the 60 million people in our country who are affected by mental illness.

Addressing the mental health crisis in America means addressing the housing crisis as well. That’s why NAMI is advocating for rental assistance and affordable housing for people with mental illness. With your gift today, we will continue to help people with mental health conditions improve their lives.

 Gratefully,
