Become a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. NAMI Valley of the Sun appreciates the hard work and commitment from everybody who donates their time to help us continue our effort in helping everybody affected by mental illnesses.

Volunteer Placement Process

  1. Submit the online Volunteer Interest Form. If you need a hard copy, or have difficulties completing the form, contact us at (602) 244-8166 or by email at
  2. Attend a NAMI Volunteer Interview (scheduled 7-10 days from receipt of your form).  The Volunteer Orientation covers the history of NAMI Valley of the Sun, our requirements for volunteering as well as current volunteer opportunities that are available to help find the best fit for you given your interest and skills.
  3. Depending on which volunteer opportunity you are interested in, you will be referred to the appropriate NAMI staff member for next steps or additional training. If this is the case you will work with NAMI staff to confirm these dates.


Please be advised that some volunteer opportunities, such as those that may go into schools and work with youth (ie: Ending the Silence), may require authorized background checks prior to assignment.
