Resources For Affiliates
Here in Virginia we have 17 hardworking affiliates. Each works in collaboration with NAMI Virginia to provide support, education and advocacy within their local community. Affiliates are often made up of volunteers who are personally connected to mental illness who donate their times to help others, ‘pay it forward’. Passion is present in every affiliate leader however the skills, knowledge and expertise to run a nonprofit organization may not always be the skillsets they bring to the Affiliate. Here are a variety of resources to help support our passionate Affiliate leaders in building infrastructure.
