NAMI Greater Houston
Glenn D. Urbach, Executive Director
One of every five Houstonians (819,000, including 150,000 young children) has a diagnosable mental illness.
' Houston loses more than $5.6 billion yearly in productivity and annual earnings as a result of severe mental illness among workers and prospective workers.
' More people suffer from mental illness than from cancer, diabetes, or heart disease.
' NAMI Greater Houston sponsors evidence-based education programs, peer-facilitated support groups, community information and referral programs, and strategic advocacy efforts that enable families and individuals affected by mental illnesses to live healthy and fulfilling lives.
