Volunteers must be a Washington State resident.

The NAMI South King County affiliate is recruiting for volunteers interested in sharing their stories about mental health challenges, either based on their own experiences or a loved one’s. You must be over 18 to participate, and reside in the state of Washington. NAMI Ending the Silence is an engaging presentation that helps middle and high school students learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions and what steps to take if you, or a loved one are showing symptoms of a mental health condition. Our volunteers are vital to this important youth program and are compensated via a stipend, per presentation.

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.
