FaithNet is a resource on the NAMI National website which provides information and education for faith communities and faith leaders. NAMI FaithNet is a resource network of NAMI members, friends, clergy and congregations of all faith traditions who wish to encourage faith communities who are welcoming and supportive of persons and families living with mental illness.
Rev. Kathy Dale McNair, our FaithNet coordinator, is actively reaching out to faith communities. She can equip faith communities with tools as they respond to mental health concerns in their congregation and their community. If you are interested in finding out more about FaithNet, call Rev. McNair at 847-716-2252 to start the conversation!
