Mental Health Support Group Leaders Sought

Are you living in recovery and looking for a way to give back? Are you interested in helping to provide peer support and empower others living with mental illnesses? If so, consider becoming a leader for one of our NAMI Connection support groups!

Groups meet weekly in their local community (or online) and offer a safe space where individuals can talk about what they're going through with their peers. Meetings last 90 minutes and are run by a team of volunteer facilitators who manage the group discussion.

Selected candidates attend a free two-day training May 5-6 and are provided with ongoing support throughout their volunteer experience from NAMI staff.

Potential candidates must:

- personally live with mental illness
- be living well in recovery
- have good interpersonal skills
- make a good-faith commitment to lead the group weekly for at least a year.

To Apply: Please fill out the volunteer application and schedule your interview as soon as possible. Candidates familiar with NAMI's support group model are preferred, so attending a Connection group is recommended if one is available in your area.

We're especially looking for facilitators to fill openings within our Dual Diagnosis (addiction + mental Illness) and Connection models.
