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

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.

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.
