Applications for NAMI’s young adult advisory group, NAMI Next Gen, are now open until Sept. 30, 2022
We believe youth mental health services, resources, and programs should be informed and led by young people. If you’re looking to break the stigma around mental health, and use your voice for change, NAMI Next Gen is the opportunity for you.
NAMI Next Gen is an advisory group made up of a diverse group of 10 young adults aged 18-25 with the sole intention of helping youth and young adults across the nation affected by mental health conditions. We hope to bring together young people from a variety of different backgrounds and experiences to provide vital perspectives on how NAMI can best serve our nation’s youth.
This role is from January – December 2023
The mission of NAMI Next Gen is to serve as leaders who address the mental health and well-being of their peers through resource development, shared decision-making, program planning and bringing valuable youth perspectives to NAMI’s organizational work.
The goal of NAMI Next Gen is to spread awareness, educate, advocate for and empower youth and young adults.
Youth mental health has never been more important than now, join NAMI Next Gen to impact change!
