The Consumer Council, known as “the Consumer’s Voice on Mental Illness” is for individuals who have a mental illness, and serves as an advisory group to the NAMI SD Board of Directors. Consumer Council members must be dues paid members of NAMI SD.
How is my membership money spent?
A portion of membership dues is sent to both NAMI South Dakota and NAMI National. These funds are used to educate about severe brain disorders: support increased funding for research; and advocate for adequate health insurance, housing, rehabilitation and jobs for people with serious psychiatric illnesses.
Most of the improvements in mental health care over the past 40+ years are a direct result of the advocacy leadership of NAMI. Your membership dollars have been responsible for these improvements.
How is the money kept in South Dakota spent?
Some of these funds are used to pay for education, newsletters, educational materials, conferences meetings our website, office supplies and other similar expenses incurred by a charitable non-profit organization. In addition, these funds support our NAMI Signature Education and Support Programs.
