Frequently Asked Questions from NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates

Answers to frequently asked questions from NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates.

How can NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates promote NAMI on Campus to schools and students?

NAMI has created a tip sheet for NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates on how to promote NAMI on Campus, including how to reach out to schools and students.

How can NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates support existing NAMI on Campus clubs?

NAMI has created a tip sheet for NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates on how to support existing NAMI on Campus clubs and leaders. This document includes a comprehensive list of ideas on how to collaborate successfully with student clubs. 

How can NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates help with the NAMI on Campus startup process?

It is important that efforts to start a club are led by students but NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates play an important role in supporting students starting clubs. As part of the startup process, students are required to reach out and connect with their NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates. We want to make sure you are aware of each other and have the opportunity to build collaborative relationships. Check out NAMI's tip sheet on Starting NAMI on Campus Clubs for NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates for more information on your role during the startup process.

Do NAMI on Campus clubs need to pay membership dues?

As part of the NAMI on Campus startup process, all students create free NAMI online accounts at www.nami.org/register. We also highly recommend to them that they become dues-paying NAMI members under the Open Door membership option.

You are encouraged to sign up students as members of your NAMI State Organization and NAMI Affiliate and collect membership dues from the NAMI on Campus club leader. The membership level that students are eligible for is the Open Door membership. This membership lets them only pay a reduced rate of $3 in dues (per student). One dollar goes to the NAMI Affiliate, one to the NAMI State Organization and one to NAMI.

The process for collecting dues and signing up students as members is determined by you. Currently, there is no online option on the NAMI.org website for students to sign up under the Open Door membership. Thus, whatever works best for you, works for us. You may also choose not to collect dues.
