Club Mission Statement
Your club's mission statement should be consistent with NAMI's mission statement and how we talk about NAMI and NAMI on Campus.
NAMI's mission statement:
NAMI recognizes that the key concepts of recovery, resiliency and support are essential to improving the wellness and quality of life for all persons affected by mental illness.
NAMI will advocate at all levels to ensure that all persons affected by mental illness receive the services that they need and deserve, in a timely fashion. Mental illnesses should not be an obstacle to a full and meaningful life for persons who live with them.
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raising awareness and building a community of hope for all those in need.
About NAMI on Campus:
NAMI on Campus clubs are student-led clubs that tackle mental health issues on campus by raising mental health awareness, educating the campus community, supporting students, promoting services and supports and advocating. These clubs are open to all students, whether they live with a mental health condition, are a family member or friend or have an interest in mental health. NAMI on Campus clubs aim to address the mental health needs of all students so they have positive, successful and rewarding college experiences.
