NAMI Website Tells Where to Get Help Statewide
Sunday, September 27, 2020


The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Idaho, has unveiled a new website as part of National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.

The website at includes a calendar of support groups that meet in the Wood River Valley, Treasure Valley, the Idaho Falls area and the Sandpoint area.

The support groups, which were face to face before COVID 19, now are all online so they can be accessed by anyone in Idaho, regardless of where they live.

“This is a landmark moment that enables our local NAMI affiliates to offer support group access to people and areas that do not have a local NAMI affiliate,” said Michael Sandvig, president of NAMI Idaho.

The Wood River Valley affiliate has a Spanish speaking family support group—Grupo de Apoyo para Familiares de NAMI, he added.
