The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Southwest Louisiana (NAMI SWLA) is an organization of families and individuals directly affected by mental illness. Members are recruited from a five parish area of Southwest Louisiana: Calcasieu, Cameron, Beauregard, Allen and Jeff Davis.

Our mission at NAMI Southwest Louisiana is to improve the quality of life of all those who are affected by mental illness through education, advocacy and support. Our vision at NAMI Southwest Louisiana is to assist the community, local agencies, mental health rehabilitation services, and volunteer leaders in uniting together to obtain a better understanding of mental illness.
