NAMI GB CAN (NAMI Greater Boston Consumer Advocacy Network) provides support, education and advocacy. We are a grassroots organization of people with lived experience of mental health treatment (Peers). We are an affiliate of NAMI-MASS (National Alliance on Mental Illness of Massachusetts). We are dedicated to eliminating the stigma and discrimination of those labeled with mental illness.

NAMI is known as the "Nation's Voice on Mental Illness" and we at GB CAN believe that this voice must be recovery-oriented and value the lived experience of Peers. Call us today at (617) 626-8694 or email us at Together we will win!
