NAMI Metro Baltimore recruits volunteers from the local community, many of whom are indivdiuals living with mental illness, their family members and health service providers.  Volunteers are essential to the success of NAMI Metro Baltimore.

Volunteer Requirements

  • All volunteers must be over the age of 14.  Certain volunteer roles require individuals over the age of 18.
