Start a New Affiliate
Thank you for your interest in starting a NAMI Affiliate! Our Affiliate leaders are dedicated to the cause and work tirelessly to provide valuable mental health services and supports to their communities. In order for us to ensure that we reach all Texans, we need to have Affiliate coverage throughout the state. There are still many underserved areas of Texas. We need your help!
How Do I Get Started?
1. First, check to see if there is an existing NAMI Affiliate in your area:
View a map of Affiliate Service Areas.
2. If a NAMI Affiliate is already serving your county, get in touch with them to see how you might be able to contribute to the work being done in your area.
If your county is not already covered by an existing NAMI Affiliate or if you are not sure, contact the NAMI Texas office to arrange an exploratory meeting.
3. Prior to the exploratory meeting, familiarize yourself with the process.
