The families and members of NAMI Mt San Jacinto are here to help! We offer understanding to anyone concerned about mental health conditions and the treatment of them.
Mental health conditions are considered biologically based medical conditions. Sometimes they can cause changes in thinking, feeling and relating. This can result in a diminished capacity for dealing with the ordinary demands of life. When this happens a person may consider getting treatment. Mental health conditions can affect persons of any age and occur in any family. They are not caused by bad parenting and not evidence of weakness of character.
