NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health nonprofit organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.


NAMI Piedmont Tri-County truly began through the efforts of two family members back in the 1980's, Bettye Jean Boone and Louise Hassenplug. Originally, the organization was called, The Rock Hill Alliance for the Mentally Ill. In 1995, the organization became a 501(c)3, continually growing to reach individuals and family members dealing with mental illness.

Today, NAMI Piedmont Tri-County serves York, Chester, and Lancaster counties out of our office and Drop-In Center located in Rock Hill. We are continuing to support families affected by mental health disorders through free education classes and support groups. In addition, we have extended our outreach to the local community we serve to provide education to schools (both teachers and students), police departments, and child-serving agencies to educate them about signs and symptoms of mental illness.

Our Mission

Providing hope to those who deserve it most

At NAMI Piedmont Tri-County, we aim to rebuild hope where it’s been damaged or lost. We work with those in need, those who are underprivileged, and those who are underserved and often isolated. We aim to rebuild hope and recovery for those who have a mental health diagnosis. Our focus lies on community efforts for all those whose mental health is affected through support, community awareness, advocacy, and education. Our drop-in center is a place of support and inclusion for those who need community or are isolated due to circumstances. One in four people are affected by a mental health diagnosis in some way, NAMI's across the nation are united in the mission to stamp out stigma and, over time, stamp out mental illness! Join us as we focus on providing hope and recovery to those who deserve it most.
