NAMI Idaho and its affiliates offer a wide range of free support groups and education programs, as well as engaging community presentations about the challenges of living with mental illness.

Timeline PhotosHave you heard of a co-occurring disorder or a dual diagnosis? Within the behavioral health community these terms refer to instances where a mental health condition and a substance use disorder (SUD) present together. People living with a mental health condition are more likely to have a SUD compared to those who do not experience a mental health condition. Understanding what you are experiencing and where to go for help is important for anyone experiencing a mental health-related issue.
