Help needed urgently
While there are many roles to take on at NAMI, our most urgent needs include those listed below. Training and ongoing support for all roles is always provided at no cost.
- Support group facilitators: Facilitators help support group participants feel comfortable and safe, guide conversation, and lead people to places of greater strength, connection and community. We're currently looking for people interested in facilitating both our Family and Connection groups. Some prior experience with NAMI's programs is preferred.
- Family-to-Family teachers: These people leverage their own lived experience of caring for a loved one with a mental illness by teaching NAMI's flagship Family-to-Family course. In early 2020, the course was condensed from 12 weeks into eight — meaning the time commitment is less demanding than in the past.
- Office volunteers: Office volunteers answer the NAMI office line and help with office projects during four-hour shifts between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Regular weekly slots are currently available, and we're always seeking people who are willing to fill in on an as-needed basis.
