I’m working on a school project and would like to interview someone at NAMI.

Thank you so much for contacting NAMI to request an interview for your project. We appreciate your interest in mental health. Unfortunately, due to the volume of requests for assistance from our HelpLine, we are unable currently to assist you directly with your request.
