What is NAMI on Campus?

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. NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raising awareness and building a community of hope for all those in need. To learn more about NAMI visit www.nami.org.

NAMI on Campus is an exciting extension of NAMI's mission into the campus community. NAMI on Campus clubs are student-led clubs that tackle mental health issues on campus by raising mental health awareness, educating the campus community, supporting students, promoting services and supports and advocating. NAMI on Campus clubs aim to address the mental health needs of all students so they have positive, successful and fun college experiences. See if there is a NAMI on Campus at your school by checking our NAMI on Campus club list.

Club leaders have access to the staff, programs, resources, opportunities, benefits and support of being part of the larger NAMI cause—even beyond their college years. NAMI on Campus leaders are granted exclusive access to a broad range of online resources and materials to help them start and sustain a successful NAMI on Campus club. They are also provided with various networking opportunities to connect with other leaders.
