NAMI California’s Board of Directors is an all-inclusive board that seeks highly qualified California leaders to serve, embrace and enhance NAMI California’s mission and long-term strategic direction. Service on the NAMI California Board requires experience, knowledge, commitment and time to help all those families and individuals impacted by mental illness in our state.

NAMI California and our members are fortunate to have a wonderful Board full of state leaders on a variety of issues such as health care, law enforcement, affiliate leadership, education, diversity, and research amongst many other valuable skills. All of whom also share the personal perspective of a family member or individual impacted by mental illness. This stable, thoughtful leadership gives us the critical knowledge, connections, and experience to move NAMI forward in California.

This year, four candidates will be elected to serve for a three year-term. Meet the candidates, watch their video statements and cast your vote!
