From 2006 to 2011, NAMI leaders and members worked together to craft “mutually agreed upon standards of operation”. The call for standards began in in 2006 when members identified organizational standards as critical to NAMI’s growth and future success. The NAMI Standards of Excellence are the fruits of that grassroots vision and labor.
We think of this effort as “Better Together” – a collaborative initiative to ensure NAMI is the strong and vibrant presence we need it to be in order to meet the needs of individuals and families whose lives have been affected by mental illness.
Standards are helping us build the NAMI brand, to make NAMI the household name that leaders and members want us to be.
