NAMI on Campus is an extension of our mission into the campus community. NAMI on Campus clubs are student-led and tackle mental health issues on campus by:

  • Raising mental health awareness.
  • Educating the campus community.
  • Supporting and connecting students.
  • Promoting services and supports.
  • Advocating.

How is NAMI on Campus Different?

  • NAMI is the largest grassroots mental health organization in America. By joining, students are part of the broader mental health movement.
  • NAMI provides student leaders with direct support and exclusive access to national resources and networking opportunities.
  • NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates provide clubs with local support, resources and programs to bring to their campus communities.
  • NAMI is a lifelong organization. NAMI is there for students, their peers, and their families, always.

Why Start a Club?

  • Mental health issues are more prevalent than ever on college campuses.
  • Many students living with mental health conditions do not get help due to stigma.
  • Without treatment, young adults with mental health issues are more likely to receive lower GPA’s, drop out or be unemployed.
  • Students have emphasized the critical need for peer-run, student mental health organizations to reduce stigma, creating a positive and supportive environment.
  • NAMI on Campus clubs can help make a difference.
