May Membership Drive
In 1979, a pioneering group of Main Line family members incorporated the organization that over the years has evolved into NAMI Main Line PA. We are having a membership drive this month, which is Mental Health Month. In honor of our affiliate’s 40th anniversary, we aim to increase our membership by at least one-quarter.
- If you are not yet a member, we hope you will join our affiliate
- If you are already a member and receive a membership renewal notice, please do respond by renewing your membership.
Your affiliate membership will increase the effectiveness of our advocacy and help to support our free services for individuals with mental illness and their families. Your support makes it possible for families and individuals that live with mental health challenges to find help and hope.
