"NAMI FaithNet is an interfaith resource network of NAMI members, friends, clergy and congregations of all faith traditions who wish to encourage faith communities who are welcoming and supportive of persons and families living with mental illness.
NAMI FaithNet strives to encourage welcoming, caring congregations as well as to promote the vital role of spirituality in the recovery journeys of many who live with mental health conditions, those for whom faith is a key component.
Through this website and through efforts nationally and in our own local community, NAMI SW WA encourages an exchange of information, tools, and other resources which will help educate and inspire faith communities about mental illness and the vital role spirituality plays in recovery for many.
NAMI FaithNet is not a religious network but includes an effort to outreach to all religious organizations.
Who Advises NAMI FaithNet?
In order to meet our mission, NAMI FaithNet (NFN) is supported by an Advisory Group that provides advice, guidance, recommendations, leadership, promotion and content to ensure that the voice and needs of our grassroots constituency is strong and reflected in our work.
The 11 NFN Advisors are volunteers who recommend to NAMI national staff NFN web content, materials, activities, tools and other resources. On the local and state level, NFN Advisors support the initiation of faith outreach activities through their NAMI local and state affiliates. In addition, they help plan, manage and/or execute recommendations for networking, workshop, symposia sessions and an interfaith service for the NAMI Annual Convention."
