We would welcome your support as a NAMI Information HelpLine Volunteer!
The NAMI Information HelpLine is contacted over 50,000 times annually from individuals impacted by mental illness. Those reaching out to us seek assistance, and we rely on our devoted team of volunteers and interns to provide the vital support needed.
With extensive training and on-going support from NAMI HelpLine staff, our HelpLine Information Specialists provide callers with information, referrals and support to people living with a mental health condition, family members and caregivers, mental health providers and the public. If you seek first-hand experience in a supportive environment that appreciates your service, we encourage you to apply to join our team of volunteers.
If you are located in the Washington, DC area and would like to volunteer to be a HelpLine Information Specialist in our Arlington, VA office, you may apply here.
If you are not located in the Washington D.C. area, we invite you to contact your local NAMI Affiliate or NAMI State Organization to discuss volunteer opportunities. To find your nearest NAMI Affiliate, click on your state through the Find Your Local NAMI menu.
