We are friendly people that like to help others that many times do not know where to turn. Our volunteers are available as a resource for your event. Examples of events we regularly attend as a resource are Walk for Hope in Saginaw, Saginaw Spirit and Flint Firebird’s mental health nights, various health fairs, school resource nights, and other similar community events.

Invite us to present at your organization’s meeting

We have several dedicated and knowledgeable professionals at our fingertips ready to introduce NAMI Genesee to our organization. Our goal is to promote NAMI Genesee so that we can serve more families impacted by mental illness. The best way to do this is by getting in front of people to talk about our evidence-based programs and support groups. We have presented to Rotary clubs, Flint & Genesee Chamber Leadership NOW cohort, 100 Women Who Care, churches, schools and hospitals.
