NAMI LONG BEACH AREA

NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation's leading voice on mental health. Today, we are an association of more than 500 local affiliates who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.

We are often out in the community at resource fairs, mental health events, farmers markets, community festivals and street fairs to let the public know about our non-profit and the classes, support groups and community presentations we offer. We are always in search of reliable, empathetic and enthusiastic volunteers who like engaging with the public at these types of events. We pass out flyers and sometimes have a prize wheel and give aways. These are fun events and the time commitment is minimal, usually 3-5 hour shifts once or twice a month. If you are interested in learning more about our organization and how you can be involved please contact us.

Description

We educate. Offered in thousands of communities across the United States through NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates, our education programs ensure hundreds of thousands of families, individuals and educators get the support and information they need.

We advocate. NAMI shapes national public policy for people with mental illness and their families and provides volunteer leaders with the tools, resources and skills necessary to save mental health in all states.

We listen. Our toll-free NAMI HelpLine allows us to respond personally to hundreds of thousands of requests each year, providing free information and support-a much-needed lifeline for many.

We lead. Public awareness events and activities, including Mental Illness Awareness Week and NAMIWalks, successfully fight stigma and encourage understanding. NAMI works with reporters on a daily basis to make sure our country understands how important mental health is.
