Would you like to help other parents or caregivers of children with mental health symptoms learn tools and techniques to navigate the school and mental health systems? We currently offer this free class in English, but would like to make it available in Spanish to our community. Please contact us to attend free NAMI Basics Instructor training.

We have other volunteer positions, such as administrative help answering calls and emails, fundraising, newsletter writing or editing, and outreach to the community. Help us reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and show our support to those dealing with issues related to mental health conditions!
