NAMI on Campus
NAMI Geauga County
NAMI on campus is an opportunity to start a NAMI group on your college campus. NAMI runs support groups, teaches education classes, and advocates for those who have mental illness and their families. As an on campus organization students would be able to be trained to run support groups (groups are for 18 years and older) as well as do advocacy work within their community. The details of this group would need to be discussed further but if this is something that you are interested in doing please contact us!!!!
