NAMI LONG BEACH AREA

We are a growing mental health non-profit serving Long Beach and the surrounding areas. We are a 99% volunteer organization and as such many of our current volunteers are stretched thin and yet many people who want to volunteer are not being utilized because we lack the manpower to organize them.

That's where you come in. We need YOU to help us figure out how to help these people help us help other people. If you have experience in organizing, recruiting, managing, and mentoring volunteers please contact us.

This role is for someone who has empathy and respect for the population we serve, can work unsupervised, meet deadlines, speak with the public (possibly some public speaking), manage schedules, good communication skills, and a sense of humor. This role is for someone who wants to grow the organization, is dedicated and passionate.

*Family Members or Peers with a mental health condition highly encouraged to apply.

Mission Statement

NLBA supports people with mental illness and their families by helping them to find coping mechanisms for daily struggles, including mental health support groups, classes, workshops, and special events. We educate people who have mental illness, their families, caregivers, and the community at large in order to improve resources, services, and knowledge by reducing misinformation. We promote conversation in our community to remove stigmas that are often associated with mental illness. NBLA works with community-based organizations, families, caregivers, health organizations, business, law enforcement, legal advocacy, schools, and youth organizations. We advocate for more research leading to eradication of mental illness and promote social policy that includes expanded services and improved treatment for our loved ones leading to an improved system of mental health services across the nation.
