WHY SHOULD I JOIN?
Why is your membership important?
- To keep you informed and up to date on important mental health issues, research, services, supports and public policy initiatives on the local, state and national levels via access to the NAMI online member community, NAMI’s national (The Advocate and NAMI Voice) state (NAMI California Update) and local (NAMI News) publications and member discounts on NAMI merchandise and registration fees at annual national and state conferences.
- To ensure that your voice is counted among the hundreds of others in Santa Barbara County represented by NAMI as we work for improved mental health services for people living with mental health disorders and their families. When we advocate for improved services, it’s important for government officials to know how many people we represent – the larger our membership, the closer they listen!
