General Meetings -Our leadership team works hard to ensure that each year we are offering meetings that will benefit our members. General Member Meetings are held bi-weekly on Wednesday nights, and each features a new guest speaker that talks about applicable mental health related topics.
Volunteer Opportunities - Getting involved with NAMI-UW looks different for every student. Our goal is to help you use your skills to help advocate, educate, and support individuals with and without mental health concerns both here on the UW-Madison campus, and in our community! In the past, NAMI-UW has helped hold blood drives and has helped raise donations for nearby shelters.
Socials - Every semester we offer a variety of social events specifically catered to upcoming holidays and member interests. These events allow members to get to know each other better in an inclusive environment, while also seeking the benefits of integrated self care activities.
Fundraising Opportunities - Each year, active members must also participate in one of our fundraising events offered. Our most popular fundraising event is NAMI Walks, which is hosted by NAMI Dane County – in 2021 we raised $3,025! In addition to NAMI Walks, we offer other fundraising opportunities such as selling donuts outside of Brogden and receiving proceeds from companies like Salads Up and Mooyah.
