NAMI AIR Mobile App for Mental Health Support


The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has unveiled NAMI AIR, a unique iPhone and Android app to provide support and access to information both for persons living with mental health conditions and for family members, friends and other caregivers.

AIR stands for "Anonymous. Inspiring. Relatable."

NAMI AIR is available for free download from the Google Play and iPhone App Stores—which can be accessed from

"NAMI AIR is unique. It is designed for both individuals and families affected by mental illness," said NAMI Executive Director Mary Giliberti.

"A person can be heard and acknowledged without being judged or getting unsolicited advice. Users can share experiences or encouragement and receive responses such as 'like' or 'me too.'"

Posts are anonymous to preserve privacy, but monitored by NAMI's HelpLine in case special, confidential assistance is needed.

NAMI AIR enables users to connect to NAMI's newly-designed website,, and NAMI's HelpLine at 1-800-950-6264 or Both provide contact information for local NAMI Affiliates and their programs.

The app also connects to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

"Users are anonymous, but they are not alone," Giliberti said.
