Your membership counts.
Support NAMI Chicago by becoming a member today and add your name to the list of thousands raising their voices to demand services, support and respect for the millions affected by mental illnesses. NAMI Chicago membership demonstrates your support for the important work being done at NAMI and helps us make our voice heard in Chicago, Springfield, and the nation’s capital.
Member contributions directly support the programs and services that NAMI Chicago provides to the community FREE of charge. NAMI Chicago members receive the NAMI Chicago Newsletter, access to our lending library, and invitations to our member events & Social Support Club events. Individuals living with mental illness are entitled to join our Social Support Club, which offers a number of social outings and opportunities for meeting other individuals living in recovery. Please reach out to Betty Frazier to be sure you receive Social Support Club notices.
A NAMI Chicago membership also grants you complimentary membership with the national & state organizations, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and NAMI Illinois. You’ll receive NAMI’s national news magazine, the Advocate, and NAMI Illinois’ newsletter, Stateline. Members also enjoy reduced costs at conventions, the NAMI Store, and other events, as well as voting privileges to shape the future of America’s largest grassroots organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions affected by mental illness.
NAMI Chicago’s Regular Membership rate is $35 annually, and additional contributions allow us the opportunity to continue expanding our reach. We do not wish for financial hardship to restrict membership, so please know that an Open Door Membership is available to those with limited resources at a minimum contribution of just $3 per year.
For your convenience, when you become a member of NAMI Chicago online through PayPal, your membership will automatically renew each year. If at any point you would like to cancel your membership, please contact PayPal to do so.
