NAMI is the best resource for all persons affected by serious mental illness, and as a grassroots organization, we derive our strength through the help of our volunteers.  Helping your local NAMI is truly working on the front lines to help improve the quality of life for people and familes living with serious mental illness.   

"The simple act of helping another makes a tremendous difference for those who are helped by our 'special' brand of support and education.  I receive so much more than I give - it's a wonderful feeling, knowing that in some of the smallest ways, I'm making such a difference."

ABOUT TEACHING OR FACILITATING A NAMI PROGRAM

Image

We need volunteers at many levels -- to teach or facilitate classes and support groups -- to reach out to the community, all working to promote our organization in the community so that those who need us the most can find us. 

A NAMI FAMILY TO FAMILY TEACHER OR FACILITATOR is a volunteer who facilitates the NAMI Signature Family to Family 12 week education program.  NAMI Education Facilitators play an important role in that they are able to teach Family to Family and other NAMI programs and workshops that provide life-changing educational information for families, caregivers and friends of persons with serious mental illness. 

NAMI Family to Family Facilitators are certified by attending and graduating from an intensive three day training taught by National Certified Trainers.  

A NAMI F2F Facilitator ensures responsibility for maintaining the fidelity of the course is comfortable and familiar with the emotional issues families face and are uniquely qualified to facilitate the course because they have learned to live well with the mental illness in their family. 

The NAMI Family to Family Education Course is based on a co-leader model of teaching and Family to Family Facilitators should be first-degree relatives, caregivers, partners or significant others of an individual with serious mental illness. 

Wanting to teach this course is the ultimate qualification for doing so. 


A NAMI SUPPORT GROUP FACILITATOR is a volunteer who leads a support group.  NAMI Support Group Facilitators play an important role in helping persons seeking support take away from the group experience something which is of practical, immediate relevance to their needs so that they view the support group as a place where positive things happen. 

NAMI Support Group Facilitators are certified by attending and graduating from an intensive two day training taught by National Certified Trainers. 

A NAMI Support Group facilitators ensures the fundamental structures and group process is both empathetic and upbeat, keeps the group centered (including themselves) in a facilitative environment.

The NAMI Support Group Model is based on a co-leader model of leading a support group.  NAMI Support Groups are peer-led and facilitators are uniquely qualified to lead a support group because they have learned to live well with their illness or the mental illness in their family. 

Wanting to be a support group facilitator is the ultimate qualification for doing so.
