NAMI On Campus
NAMI On Campus are student-led clubs that raise mental health awareness and reduce stigma on high school and college campuses through peer-led activities, education, and events. Through a partnership with NAMI North Texas, student leaders are empowered with toolkits, materials, and resources to make running the club fun and educational. NAMI On Campus connect students with their local community and supports them in creating a culture free of judgment and accepting of reaching out for help; a more aware and mental health-supportive school culture. NAMI On Campus are open to all students interested in mental health – It is not a support or therapy group. NAMI On Campus serves as a space where like minded students can spearhead activities and discussions that combat stigma and contribute to an overall positive climate for mental health
Open to schools and universities in Collin, Dallas, Denton and Rockwall Counties.
The purpose of NAMI On Campus is to:
Educate and raise the awareness of students, teachers, faculty, and school administration about mental health and wellness
Be supportive of students who are living with mental health conditions
Encourage people to recognize early warning signs
Let students know there is help available if they need it
Encourage students who are having mental health issues to get help
Provide information on school and community resources
Work to end the stigma that surrounds mental health conditions
Create an inclusive, safe, and supportive school environment
NAMI knows that some of the best support a student can receive is from their peers. When students connect with one another, they can share common experiences and support each other. It's the NAMI way.
NAMI On Campus works to end the stigma that makes it harder for students to talk about mental health and get the help they need. NAMI On Campus clubs hold creative meetings, innovative awareness events, and offer signature NAMI programs though partnership with NAMI North Texas.
