Find a Local NAMI

It’s a historic time for NAMI California and we need your support now more than ever!

This year, you have the opportunity to donate in support of NAMI California’s efforts through your state tax return. This is an incredibly powerful opportunity for our state to take a giant leap towards the goal of de-stigmatizing mental illness.

Donations will directly fund our partnership with local law enforcement to train them on how to safely interact with individuals experiencing a mental health crisis through the Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) program. This type of training is crucial for helping individuals, families, and communities impacted by mental illness.

I’m personally asking for your help in donating to this incredibly vital cause. All you need to do is check the box labeled “National Alliance on Mental Illness California Voluntary Tax Contribution Fund” on the contributions page of your California Income Tax Return.

Please take a moment this tax season for mental health. With your support, we can make an incredibly impactful difference in communities across the state.

Thank you for being a part of our team at NAMI California!
