We are proud to be finding ways to serve our community during this difficult time. We hope you will join us in celebrating #GivingTuesdayNow, a new global day of giving and unity taking place on May 5 (in addition to the regularly scheduled #GivingTuesday on Dec. 1, 2020) as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Let’s come together to create a wave of generosity. Two things you can do:

  • Share what NAMI California has given you. Have we helped you in your journey? Have our services or programs given you help and hope? Have our support groups or classes helped you or one of your loved ones? Please let us know and we will share your comments (with your name or anonymously), with the hope of inspiring others to get the help they need. Fill out our simple form, or share a post on social media and tag us.
  • Share what you can to support our work. Renew your membership or get a membership for a loved one or make a donation. As a nonprofit organization, every dollar donated to us funds our vital work to help our communities.

Thank you!
