The following are events, activities and resources from our NAMI on Campus clubs. If you would like to submit your club’s work, please send it to

Christopher Newport University

For Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW), the club hosted a screening of Silver Linings Playbook with a guest speaker who shared her experience living with bipolar disorder. After the movie, they held a discussion about the perceptions of mental illness among the audience members and in the movie. The club reserved an auditorium that sat 130 people but were thrilled to find out that it wasn't even close to big enough to hold all of the students who attended! The club also created and sold Christopher Newport University bracelets and donated 100% of the proceeds to their local NAMIWalks!

John Jay University

NAMI on Campus John Jay has created an awesome, comprehensive welcome packet to let students and faculty on campus know what they're all about. They've included their mission statement, as well as the events that they'll be holding, what they hope to accomplish and how to get involved. Check out the awesome resource and develop one of your own!
