Our 2016 Amplify Austin campaign is focused on supporting our youth mental health programs because 20% of all teens are living with a mental health condition yet only 50% are accessing treatment.

When you “crank up the giving” for NAMI Austin, you make it possible for us to engage teens, train school professionals and provide education and support for families—all at absolutely no cost! Check out KVUE’s recent coverage of our “Ending the Silence” program here.

How Can You Amplify NAMI Austin?

Make a donation.

With Amplify Austin’s “set it and forget it” option, you can schedule your donation today by clicking here. Don’t forget: Our “bonus dollars” mean every dollar you donate up to $5,000 will be matched. When you give $25, NAMI  Austin receives $50!

Spread the word online!

In 2015, 43% of our donations came from your friends, neighbors and co-workers—people who didn’t know about our work until you told them by email, Facebook and Twitter. When you share our NAMI Austin Amplify Austin page with others, you’re giving them a chance to invest in the mental health of Austin’s children & youth

Email, Facebook, Twitter and are great ways to share.
