Welcome to NAMI Stark County
NAMI Stark County offers life-changing opportunities to all whose lives are touched by mental illness.
One out of every four families in America has a member with a serious mental illness.
Two out of every 100 young adults will be affected by serious brain diseases between the ages of 18 and 30.
NAMI Stark County works to “Provide Hope for Recovery for Persons and Families Impacted by Mental Illness”. We are dedicated to improving the lives of persons and families in Stark County who have been touched by mental illness through NAMI public education and information; family and consumer peer education and support; advocacy on behalf of people living with mental illness and for the health of our community; and visible public events that raise funds and awareness.
NAMI Stark County, Inc. is an affiliate of NAMI national (http://www.nami.org/).
We are also a chapter of NAMI Ohio (http://www.namiohio.org/).
There are over 1100 affiliates like us that are spread out into every state with over 220,000 members strong.
NAMI Stark County, Inc. is funded in part by the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Stark County
When opportunity knocks, you open the door. When an opportunity arrives to positively showcase mental illness and earn money at the same time, that is what is called a win, win scenario. As the head usher at the Canton Memorial Civic Center I have the opportunity to offer NAMI Stark County the wonderful chance to earn money for NAMI Stark County by ushering for all major events at the Civic Center, during the 2014/2015 season. For every volunteer hour you usher NAMI Stark County earns $8.00. I normally have 10 to 22 ushers per event working 4 hours. We would work concerts, wrestling matches, children’s shows, and the most consuming but a great money maker, The Charge Basketball team, which is part of the D league for the Cavaliers. Our dress for the Charge is beige pants and a yellow Charge polo provided by the Charge. For all other events we wear beige pants and white shirts.
I guarantee that these events will be a wonderful way to showcase mental illness in a positive light. We also will be wearing volunteer badges saying who we are and they will be attached to NAMI Stark County lanyards.
I promise you fun times, great shows and an opportunity to talk about NAMI Stark County.
What I need from you is a commitment to volunteer.
To volunteer, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 330-806-8575
I look forward to working with all of you,
