Our dedicated volunteers are the heart of NAMI Metro Baltimore. Volunteers help to better the lives of people affected by mental illness by sharing their personal experiences, talents, and skills. Whether you are giving your time because our programs have helped you or a loved one or you are passionate about mental health, you can make a difference.
There are many ways to get involved:
- Become a trained peer-leader to facilitate a support group or teach a class
- Mentor peers who are facing mental health challenges to provide hope for recovery
- Share your story to help others understand mental illness
- Raise mental health awareness as a NAMI Metro Baltimore ambassador
- Advocate in Annapolis for quality mental health care services
