Find Help, Find Hope!













Our dedicated volunteers are the heart of NAMI Montgmery County. Volunteers help to better 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 because you are passionate about mental health, you can make a difference.
