NAMI PA, Main Line, an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is a grassroots organization offering information and support to people with mental illness, their families and friends.
Our events, education programs, and support are available free-of-charge to people in the Philadelphia area. Our web resources provide information on mental illnesses, treatment and coping for interested people nationwide, services and resources in the Philadelphia area, and advocacy in Pennsylvania and nationally. As part of our services for families with children and teens with mental health needs, we offer small grants.
This year, we particularly want to celebrate the contributions of three affiliate members who have received NAMI’s Exemplary Psychiatrist award:
- Dr. Ellen Berman, who received the Exemplary Psychiatrist award this year
- Dr. Steven Siegel, who received the Exemplary Psychiatrist award in 2008
- Dr. Larry Real, who received the Exemplary Psychiatrist award in 1995.
All three of these psychiatrists have given generously of their time and expertise to help our affiliate with education and outreach. They have provided informative presentations, supported family members in Family-to-Family, and helped plan outreach events. We very much appreciate their contributions.
