Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteers are the heart of NAMI Central Texas. Volunteers help to improve the lives of people affected by mental illness by sharing their personal experiences, talents, and skills. Whether you are giving your time because our programs have helped you or a loved one or you are passionate about mental health, you can make a difference.

Below are our volunteer opportunities; you will learn more about them in our recorded Volunteer Information Session.

  • Facilitate support groups for adults who are living with a mental health condition, or for those closest to them.
  • Teach adults who are living with a mental health condition, or those closest to them, about recovery, resources, and crisis management.
  • Use your story of navigating mental health conditions by sharing your personal story in the community.
  • Give various presentations to both niche and broad audiences about mental health.
  • Assist with Outreach, Events, Fundraising, and more!
