Find a Local NAMI

This year has been challenging for us all, and we are especially grateful for what we have this year. That includes you! We couldn’t make the strides we do to improve mental health for our communities without the input and support of our members.

Giving Back and Forward

If you are already a member, we thank you! Won’t you consider gifting a membership or making a donation in the name of a family member, friend or colleague? Like paying it forward, you can give back — and forward — to help us help individuals, families and communities impacted by mental illness.

Giving to the Tree of Tribute

Each year, generous NAMI California supporters choose a major gift to honor a special family member, friend, mental health advocate, or colleague with a leaf or gem on the NAMI California Tree of Tribute in our Sacramento office.

  • Bronze Leaf $500
  • Silver Leaf $1,000
  • Gold Leaf $3,000
  • Small Gemstone $3,000
  • Large Gemstone $5,000

Each leaf or gem stone has a story of advocacy, triumph, and inspiration. Contact Eugenia Cervantes at or 916-567-0163.

Giving Twice While You Shop

You can shop for your loved ones and a portion of sales will support our work — so you’re giving twice! Now more than ever, we’re shopping online and when you shop on Amazon, you can raise money for our work. It’s easy and doesn’t cost anything more than you’re already spending! Simply sign in to Amazon Smile using this customized link and choose NAMI California as the charity of your choice, then a small portion of sales will be donated by Amazon to help fund our work. Giving gift cards? You can purchase gift cards through GiftBar and a portion of proceeds will be donated to NAMI California.
