NAMI-Eastside is a community-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life for those impacted by mental illness through advocacy, education and support.

We are looking for volunteers to participate in a number of different community outreach events throughout the rest of 2023.

Volunteers will occupy a table at the event and offer brochures and handouts that provide information about our free educational programs and support services for people of all ages living with mental illness and members of their families. Volunteers will get a brief education about what we do and who we are prior to the event and will walk you through everything you need to know.

The more events you volunteer for the more helpful it is for us as it allows us to train less people. We appreciate your interest and look forward to your assistance.
