Mental illnesses are medical conditions that disrupt a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. Serious mental illnesses include major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder etc.

The good news about mental illness is that recovery is possible. Treatments include medication, psychological therapy, counseling (including religion) and social resources.Since May 2010, ROLF (River of Life Foundation) has established the fourth Chinese Family Support Group for Mental Illness within Santa Clara County, applying similar principles that have been adopted by NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness). The support group aims to improve the quality of life for Chinese families and individuals affected by mental illness through education, experience sharing, group support and prayers. Multiple seminars are held to raise awareness, educate, and provide referrals for mental illness related services. Family lecture series are offered periodically with the objective to teach affected families how to care and cope with loved ones with mental illness. The lecture materials are furnished by NAMI, the topics ranged from introduction of mental illness, abnormality in brain chemistry from biochemical perspective, medication to key concepts on better communication with family members. We like to invite you to join us for continuing this effort to provide help and hope for the affected families. We hope that you will also benefit from this website by learning about the relevant knowledge, resources, experience and the needed support. NAMI is a national grass root and non-profit organization that is funded and run by families and individuals whose lives have been affected by mental illness.
