NAMI Virginia 2019-2022 Strategic Plan

During late 2018, NAMI Virginia’s Board of Directors and staff worked collaboratively to develop a new three-year Strategic Plan for 2019-2022.  This plan reflects the feedback and input of affiliate leaders, individuals and families, advocacy partners and other stakeholders.  We truly appreciate those who offered their time and assistance in developing this plan.  We believe this plan positions us for success at expanding NAMI programming throughout Virginia, sustaining and strengthening our local affiliates, and lifting the voices of individuals and families affected by mental illness so they can get the help, hope and support they need.  Click here to view our  Strategic Action Plan for 2019.
