Our Mission

With more than three million Americans sharing the common experience of stuttering, the National Stuttering Association (NSA) plays a vital role in letting people who stutter know that they are not alone. As the world’s largest self-help group for people who stutter, the NSA provides support and information to the stuttering community through a variety of programs and services, instilling the sense of self-worth so often missing in the lives of those who battle this disorder. You’re not alone.

the Chapter Leader

Andres Mendez My name is Andres Mendez and I live in Watsonville, California. I am a phlebotomist, and a person who stutters. In 2013 I founded the National Stuttering Association’s Watsonville Chapter support group. After attending the San Jose, CA Chapter meetings for a few months, I saw the great support it provided to me, and I wanted to bring that idea to Watsonville. My intention is to have the Chapter available for people who stutter and their families as a place to gain knowledge from other attendees about the complex condition that is stuttering, and also to create a community of support. I firmly believe that people who stutter, especially, will benefit greatly from attending these support group meetings! Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any support.
