Do you or a loved one live with mental illness? Are you comfortable using Zoom as an online platform?
If so, we need you!
1 in 5 Americans is affected by mental health conditions (which is increasingly difficult for many during these challenging times) but the perception of mental illness won’t change unless we act to change it!
NAMI Central Texas is changing the way our community addresses mental health through innovative education, support, and advocacy programs. PLEASE NOTE: All of our programs are currently being offered in an ONLINE FORMAT through January 2022.
We need volunteers with lived experience who are willing to train to teach our classes, lead support groups, or give presentations. Help us change the conversation.
Contact us via email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) to learn more!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
