  • Join a Committee – help us advocate, plan events, and more by giving your time and joining a NAMI Vermont committee.
  • Help with Outreach/Promote our Programs – Spread the word about NAMI Vermont’s programs and events by helping at an exhibit table, walking in a parade, or distributing NAMI materials into the hands of those who need them.
  • Share Your Story – Our lived experience stories provide a unique connection with others, a reminder that they are not alone. Your story can help someone, and we want to help you share it through advocacy efforts, presentations, and more.
  • Become A Board Member – Our NAMI Vermont Board of Directors is made up of passionate volunteers from diverse backgrounds. They play a key role in governance, financial oversight, budget approval, policy setting, and committee service. Join us and become a board member!

Help with the planning of this fun event, form a team, encourage friends and family to donate and walk with you, and participate on the day of the walk. This energizing and inspiring day is an amazing experience for everyone!
  • Set Up a Local Fundraiser – You can support NAMI Vermont by raising money so that we can continue to provide free programming to all Vermonters. Set up a Facebook Fundraiser for your birthday, host a yard sale for NAMI Vermont, or collect in-kind donations off of our wish list for NAMI Vermont.
