Get Involved: Join, Donate, Volunteer

NAMI Marin is a volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to building accepting, recovery oriented community for people living with mental illness and their families.  All of our programs are provided to the general public free of charge.

Have you ever wondered what the circle logo before our affiliate name represents? These are our grass roots.


We are an organization of people who are concerned about mental health, including those who live with mental illness, family members, mental health care professionals, and the generalpublic. As a grass roots organization, we want to hear your voice and your concerns. When we advocate for Prevention and Early Intervention, for better access to services, for housing, for crisis trained Law Enforcement Officers, we know that we speak for you, because we have heard you on our Help Line, and at our General Meetings, Family Support Groups, and Family-to-Family classes. We listen.

With an estimated 20 percent of families affected by mental illness, NAMI Marin’s membership represents only a small fraction of those who could benefit from our services.  It is with your help, whether through membership, volunteering,  donation, or sponsorship of our yearly NAMI Walk, that we are able to fulfill our mission of providing advocacy, education and support to individuals and families affected by mental illness.

We need the support of families, friends, consumers, professionals and others who share our goals. Membership dues,  donations and NAMI Walk sponsorship help us pay for the printing of the newsletter, educational materials, and courses such as Family-to-Family, and NAMI Marin Espanol, invaluable resources for people who love someone with a mental illness.

We appreciate your support at any level.
