Start A New Affiliate

NAMI is currently re-developing the official requirements and process to become a NAMI affiliate and we are awaiting guiding materials to assist interested individuals in developing an affiliate. The anticipated release of this information is January 2020. As more information is shared with NAMI Virginia, it will be provided here.

For the time being we encourage interested individuals to review this self assessment tool to assess how prepared they are to begin a chapter or where they may need to seek additional allies and supporters.   Please reach out to Sarah Wilson at to discuss in more detail.
