What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation's leading voice on mental health. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

Today, we are an alliance of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and a national office who work in communities across the United States to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need. NAMI advocates for all who are affected by mental illness, both the individuals and the people in their lives. In particular, we work to address disparities and injustices and to promote dignity and inclusion for all people with mental illness and their families. In addition to being advocates, we educate, we listen, and we lead as evidenced by our public awareness campaigns, the range of numerous programs we provide, and our strong public policy.

We currently have an opening for a Senior Coordinator, Digital Learning. This position supports the digital learning and training delivery projects within the NAMI National Education Program (NEP) Team. The Senior Coordinator supports NEP Team along with field program leaders to strengthen and expand NAMI NEPs throughout diverse communities across the country.

This position is based in Arlington, VA with an alternative option to work remotely from anywhere within the US.
