NAMI Hancock County offers a community of understanding and acceptance through education, support, and advocacy. Our ability to provide such services would not be possible without our diverse and talented pool of grassroot volunteers. All our volunteers are committed to the overall mission to promote mental health and have some personal experience with mental illness either as an individual, family member, friend, or a concerned citizen.
If mental health is important to you and you are passionate about helping your community, please consider becoming a volunteer today!
