What is Faithnet?

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.

NAMI FaithNet strives to encourage welcoming, caring congregations as well as to promote the vital role of spirituality in the recovery journeys of many who live with mental health conditions, those for whom faith is a key component.

How to Bring Faithnet to your Faith Community

Rev. Kathy Dale McNair, our FaithNet coordinator, is actively reaching out to faith communities. She equips 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!
