Become a NAMI member at all three levels of the organization to demonstrate your commitment to a better mental health care system.

There are three types of annual memberships: 

  • Household membership = $60 (includes all members of a household living at the same address) 
  • Regular membership = $40 (an individual membership for one person)
  • Open Door membership = $5 (for an individual member with limited financial resources; to choose this type of membership, enter $5.00 in the "Other" field on the online form.) 

Click here to make a secure, online donation. 

Your membership supports:

  • Local, state and federal advocacy to ensure policy that is responsive and sensitive to the needs of people affected by mental illness
  • Effective programs that positively change lives 

Member benefits:

  • Stay in the loop with quarterly news from NAMI Southeast Minnesota, NAMI Minnesota and NAMI
  • Receive discounted registration fees for the NAMI Minnesota state conference and NAMI National Convention 
  • Online access to Member-Only content 

Please note: Memberships are split between the three levels of NAMI: (1) NAMI Southeast Minnesota, serving the local area, (2) NAMI Minnesota, our state organization, and (3) NAMI national. Each level has a specific role to play and your membership benefits NAMI's complete efforts: the local affiliate delivers programs and services in the area, developing tailored responses to local need; the state and national organizations lead advocacy, communication and program development on a larger scale. However, you will receive mail from each level. Please note the logo to know where it is originating; any additional donation you elect to make over and above membership will support that level only. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at (507) 287-1692.
