We are a grass-roots organization, and volunteers have always been the heart and soul of NAMI. Our volunteers make us who we are!


If you are passionate about mental health and those with mental illnesses, one of the ways you can show your support for NAMI Topeka is to offer your invaluable time and energy as a valued volunteer.


We have many opportunities for volunteers to help. Some of our ongoing volunteer opportunities include:

  • Join Us

Become a NAMI member at all three levels of the organization – national, state and local – with one payment. You’ll be connected to NAMI, NAMI Kansas and NAMI TOPEKA. We’ll help you stay informed on mental health issues. Your membership also includes online access to member-only content, online discussion groups and discounts. As a member, you’ll add your voice to the mental health movement and help improve the lives of people with mental illness.


Volunteering for NAMI Topeka shows how important mental health is to you. Whether you are giving your time because NAMI has helped you or someone you know in the past or you are passionate about our cause, we would be very grateful of any volunteer work that you would be willing to do, as we work together to help provide education, advocacy and support to those living with mental illness and their families, in the Topeka area!
