NAMI Marin is pleased to announce the arrival of our first-ever Executive Director. Hiring an Executive Director is a recognition that the organization is on its way to the next level by expanding programs and reaching more families and individuals affected by mental illness.  Please join us in welcoming Kelli Finley, who brings a wealth of experience with non-profits, mental health and family support — among many other talents.

NAMI Marin provides support, education and advocacy for individuals and families affected by mental illness.  It offers a range of programs that are open to the public and free of charge, including support groups, educational programs for families, resource guidance, a speaker’s bureau, a program for individuals with mental illness, and a lecture series.   

“We are delighted to welcome Kelli as our Executive Director.  Her substantial expertise will help us achieve our mission to expand the number of families for whom we are able to provide support, education and advocacy”, said Debra Belaga, NAMI Marin’s President.

“I am honored to join the Board of Directors and dedicated volunteers of NAMI Marin to continue to expand the conversation around mental illness in Marin”, said Kelli. “Many members of the Marin community are affected by mental illness and we have an opportunity to address our struggles and challenges seeking collective and collaborative community solutions that put kindness and respect at the forefront of our interactions.  It is some of the most important work I could imagine.”

Kelli will provide leadership to volunteers and other supporters in implementing the vision and mission of NAMI Marin.  She can be reached at and encourages all members of the community to share their thoughts on the topic of mental illness.  The search was conducted by Janssen & Associates Recruiting.  For more information on NAMI Marin, visit
