Scholarship Award Mental health clients may apply to McHenry County College for scholarship funds for course-related expenses such as tuition, fees, books and supplies.  This was made possible through NAMI-MC fundraising efforts and the generous support of our growing membership. For more information, please contact Carolyn Gray, Financial Aid Scholarship Specialist, at (815) 455- 8911.

Group Homes AMI and Phoenix group homes offer adults who have a mental illness the opportunity to live together in a family-style atmosphere. NAMI’s vision of recovery is shared through a unique partnership with Thresholds.  The homes are supported by the McHenry County Mental Board. For more information call Thresholds at 815-338-8324.
