We are looking to specifically fund youth education classes with the money raised. With Ending the Silence, we bring to people to the campus for the presentations. Presenters need to be trained, supplied, and reimbursed. With NAMI on Campus, we come to the campus repeatedly to present the program to school staff, parent groups and the students themselves. Then we follow up with student enrollment days and follow up with club support.
Beyond those efforts, our organization is trying to increase its capacity to deliver more of NAMI's wonderful programs to the Sacramento region.
Nonprofits struggle with keeping up to date with the advances of technology. Computers and software would help in the administrative aspects of our mission.
We need people who are either living successfully with their mental illness, or are family members of people living with mental illness, to be support group facilitators and teachers for our programs.
