Volunteer with NAMI
NAMI Delaware & Morrow Counties is a volunteer-run organization. Volunteers are essential to our mission. We couldn't offer education and support to the community without them. 

It's easy to sign up to volunteer with our new Volunteer Opportunities website form. Just let us know your volunteer interests and we'll get in touch to discuss how you can help. There's a place for you at NAMI Delaware & Morrow Counties. 
Monthly Support Groups
If you are a family member or individual struggling with mental illness, check out our support groups. These are offered free of charge and allow peers to connect with one another, sharing difficulties and successes in a respectful, relaxed environment.

We're thrilled to offer our programs and support groups to the public and we hope you'll join us, or forward this newsletter to someone who may benefit.
Access to Recorded Webinar: Ask the Doctor- "I'm Not Sick, I Don't Need Help"
Did you miss the recent NAMI Ask the Doctor webinar on how to help persons with mental illness accept treatment? 

Follow this link to access a recorded version of the webinar. 

Learn why some people living with mental illness believe they don't need help or see obvious symptoms, and how this can become an obstacle to helping them get help.

Dr. Xavier Amador, an internationally renowned clinical psychologist, discusses how to overcome this common obstacle using LEAP—Listen, Empathize, Agree and Partner. With LEAP, a person can quickly gain trust, lower anger and tension, develop genuine understanding and empathy making it possible to partner with a loved one and help them receive treatment.
