Impactful conversations with NAMI Maine during Mental Health Month

HALLOWELL – During May, NAMI Maine recognizes Mental Health Awareness Month as a time to raise awareness, destigmatize the conversation, advocate for care, and provide hope to the 1 in 4 Mainers impacted by mental health challenges.

For Mental Health Month, NAMI Maine is releasing an “Impactful Conversations” YouTube series where Mainers can learn and deepen their understanding of mental health and local resources available to them and their loved ones.  

This interactive campaign will be shared across NAMI Maine platforms and is designed to empower Mainers to share mental health information and support with their own networks. Mainers are encouraged to join the conversation to break down stigma and remind their community that hope and help is available!  

NAMI Maine serves as a trusted statewide resource, bringing mental health support, education and advocacy across the state.

The stories and impact of these Mainers, who are dedicated to helping others heal and recover, can be explored in the 2021 Annual Report ( of NAMI Maine, the State Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
