About

Looking for energetic, bold hospital volunteers for our Friends in the Lobby program. In partnership with hospitals and urgent care facilities, NAMI volunteers set up a table with our brochures and information and make families aware of NAMI and how we can help them or their loved one affected by a mental health crisis. The facilities we visit may be specifically for people presenting with a mental health condition.

You will be thoroughly trained and followed throughout the course of your volunteer time with us. It is important that you be unafraid to approach people who are in need of help.

Great for students earning volunteer, practicum, or community services hours. Click the "I want to help" button.
