Raising community awareness and delivering comprehensive outreach & education programs is what we do. Our end goal is to help as many people as possible understand how critically important mental health is to their own health & wellbeing, and to ensure that mental health services and supports are readily accessible to everyone in need.  
We’ve made a massive investment in our community through the development of twenty-seven education courses created specifically for Central Iowa residents. We’ve transformed the way these programs are delivered by launching new one & two-hour sessions to improve accessibility and maximize community impact.  
Our Community Education courses are designed to provide an accessible guide to understanding mental health, practical tips for protecting & promoting your own mental wellness, and information on how family members & friends can support their loved one’s recovery.  
NAMI Greater Des Moines is committed to providing programming at little or no cost to community members, ensuring that our friends and neighbors can access mental health education & support regardless of their financial resources. All 27 Community Education courses are offered to participants free of charge, and scholarships are available for our wellness programs.  
Grants & charitable donations support the costs of these courses. United Way of Central Iowa, Polk County, Prairie Meadows, Optimae LifeServices, Broadlawns Medical Center, the Mid-Iowa Health Foundation & Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines, along with contributions from individual and family donors. The NAMI Greater Des Moines’ Benefit Golf Tournament & Roaring 20’s Fundraiser are additional revenue sources.  
Together we are building a future of recovery, respect and opportunity for those who live with mental illness. We couldn’t do it without you.
