NAMI ASSOCIATE BOARD MEMBERS
Our Associate Board is an emerging group of young leaders in the community who support the mission of NAMI CCNS to raise awareness, provide education, advocacy, and support groups for all in our communities living with mental illness and the people who love and care for them.
We are erasing the stigma of mental illness together through volunteer opportunities, fundraising events, outreach, and social events. We invite you to join with us! Join us to plan what our future can and will look like!
