What is the NAMI LLAMA? Grass logo

NAMI SWI's Mascot

Traditionally llamas are used to carry burdens. In the same way, NAMI members help those experiencing serious brain disorders to carry the many burdens of mental illness.

Symbolizes Compassion

Llamas are emotional beings. They understand when you’re sad, and they comfort you.

The NAMI LLAMA Grass logo is here to remind you

When you reach out to others for support, NAMI is here to provide it!

Proceeds from the sale of NAMI llamas will be used to provide free Llamas to the children in the Behavioral Unit at Gateway Regional Medical Center to comfort them upon their release.
