NAMI Champaign on Campus
NAMI Champaign is a proud sponsor of the NAMI on Campus program on the UIUC campus as an RSO.
NAMI on Campus is a Registered Student Organization that meets both in the fall and spring semester. You do not have to be a member of NAMI or a student on the UIUC campus to attend these events!
NAMI-UIUC, an official affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, aims to provide support, education and advocacy for all students affected by mental illness through organizing and hosting various educational, social, and awareness events. “College is an exciting time. From being away from home and finding independence to meeting new people and trying new things, every day brings new experiences. There is also a new level of academic responsibility. Classes are harder and there is always a due date on the horizon. Balancing all of the changes that happen in college can be stressful and challenging.” – NAMI.org
NAMI on Campus clubs are student-led, student-run mental health organizations on college campuses. NAMI on Campus clubs:
- Raise mental health awareness with fairs, walks and candlelit vigils.
- Educate the campus with presentations, guest speakers and student panels.
- Advocate for improved mental health services and policies on campus.
- Support peers with signature NAMI programs and training from NAMI State Organizations and Affiliates.
As a member of a NAMI on Campus club, you will belong to the largest grassroots mental health organization in America. Club leaders have access to the staff, resources, opportunities and support that comes with being part of this national movement, including opportunities beyond your college years.
