Connection Support Group Facilitator
Our peer-based, mixed-diagnosis groups meet bi-monthly for 90 minutes to offer support for individuals living with mental illnesses. Participants appreciate the accepting environment and practical feedback they receive through the collective wisdom of their peers through our group brainstorming and discussion model. Facilitators must self-identify as living with a mental illness, have good interpersonal communication skills, and be living well in recovery.
About NAMI Minnesota
1919 University Ave West, Suite 400, St. Paul, MN 55104, US
NAMI Minnesota's mission is to champion justice, dignity, and respect for all people affected by mental illness. Through education, support, and advocacy we strive to eliminate the pervasive stigma of mental illness, effect positive changes in the mental health system, and increase the public and professional understanding of mental illness.
NAMI Minnesota is a statewide grassroots organization dedicated to improving the lives of people living with mental illnesses and their families through educational programming, peer-led support, community outreach, and legislative advocacy.
All our programming is based on a peer-to-peer model,and we're always looking for individuals who have participated in our programs to join us as support group facilitators or help teach our curriculum. We are also regularly recruiting volunteers for our outreach and advocacy efforts, special events, and to help with various facets of non-profit administration.
Most NAMI program volunteers are trained and placed through the state office, and supported by their local affiliates, to fulfill their placements within their local communities.
NAMI also offers various unpaid internships in the fields of non-profit management and public policy.
NAMI does not offer direct services.
