Many of our members can remember starting out in NAMI SWI with other folks with a passion to help grow our organization. We had dreams but we were few. Now we have grown to an affiliate which strives to serve 6 Illinois counties. (Read more about the History of NAMI SWI).
Please join us by getting more involved. If you do not have a diagnosed mental illness or don’t know someone who has a mental health diagnosis, we encourage you to get to know someone who does. Come visit our office and speak with our knowledgeable staff. If you are not a member, we encourage you to become a member.
As a member or prospective member, we encourage you to participate in our upcoming events: Race for Recovery·Walk for Awareness; Piecing It All Together, an adolescent mental health education conference; Volunteer; buy a NAMI Llama; or take a NAMI Class; or visit a Support Group. The dates, times, and locations are listed on the NAMI SWI website namiswi.org.
We need you and you need us! Words cannot express how much your willingness to help our organization grow is appreciated.
By joining NAMI you will belong to a network of people who understand the issues you face. You will also receive local, state and national Newsletters on current mental health issues.
Thank you for joining NAMI SWI and remember … YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!
