We are a no-charge program to our participants. Our funding for these wonderful programs, support groups and speaking engagements are funded from: Our biggest fundraiser, Dancing with the Sioux Falls Stars, small grants, sponsors, individual donations and legacy donations. Our funds stay 100% in the Sioux Empire Area! Your donations are 100% tax deductible.
Facilitators Needed (Volunteers)
In order to increase the number of support groups available and cover more areas, we need leaders (facilitators) for NAMI Family Support and Peer Connection Recovery Support groups. Also needed: Leaders for our Peer-to-Peer and Family-to-Family education classes. To lead a group, you must have walked the walk of either a peer or a family member. There are other prerequisites and in-depth training. First steps are to (a) become a NAMI member; and (b) fill out a volunteer application.

When you volunteer you help schools, children, parents, companies and our community to a level that brings everyone together. 1 in 5 people are diagnosed with a mental health challenge. This could be: ADHD, Alzheimer’s, depression, PTSD, postpartum depression, anxiety, bi-polar, PICA, sleeping disorders and many other challenges. The list is long, but you can help make a difference to help build a new mental health system in our area. Be the change!
