NAMI On Campus Clubs are student-led clubs that tackle mental health issues at high schools and on college campuses by raising mental health awareness, educating the community, supporting students, promoting services, and advocating for more support. These clubs are open to all students, whether they live with a
mental health condition, are a family member or friend, or have a general interest in mental health.
NAMI on Campus clubs aim to address the mental health needs of all students so they have
positive, successful and fun college experiences.

WHY DOES MY SCHOOL NEED A
NAMI ON CAMPUS?
Nearly three-quarters of mental health conditions emerge by age 24, so we need to make sure students are educated about mental health. Many students facing mental health concerns for the first time and may not know where to go for support, and their peers may not know the warning signs or how to help.
NAMI knows that some of the best support a student can receive is from peers. When students connect with one another, they can share common experiences and support each other through the transitions. NAMI on Campus helps make those connections happen.
NAMI on Campus clubs work to end the stigma that makes it hard for students to talk about mental health and get the help they need. Clubs hold creative meetings, hold innovative awareness events, and offer signature NAMI programs through partnerships with NAMI Oklahoma and affiliates.
NAMI on Campus clubs are student-led, student-run mental health organizations on college campuses.
