Nicholas Emeigh, Outreach and Development
Nicholas Emeigh is a Bucks County resident, and the Director of Outreach and Development for NAMI Bucks County, PA. He attended Harry S Truman High School in Levittown and Emerson College in Boston, MA. In his role, Nick works to ensure that the look and feel of NAMI Bucks County reflects our mission of building better lives for everyone affected by mental illness, and that everyone in our community knows the NAMI name is synonymous with help and hope. He will also work to broaden our reach on the internet and social media, in the community through event planning and collaboration, speaking engagements, and new/expanded programs. Sustainability is vital to the continued success of our organization, and Nick works to form and maintain relationships with community partners, providers, systems representatives, peers, family members, and volunteers.
Nick serves on several committees including the Youth Suicide Prevention Taskforce, Suicide Prevention Taskforce, Young Adult Advisory Board, Transition Age Youth and Young Adult Workgroup, the the Community Support Program of Bucks County, the Penndel Mental Health Center Advisory Board, and the Bucks County Mental Health and Developmental Programs Advisory Board.
Having survived several suicide attempts and struggles with mental health as an adolescent and young adult, Nick originally joined NAMI Bucks County’s Ending the Silence team as a speaker in 2017. He continues to be passionate about sharing his story of recovery and works as a NAMI Connection Recovery Support Group facilitator and State Trainer, NAMI Peer-to-Peer teacher, NAMI Speaker, and provides oversight to our NAMI Friends, NAMI in the Lobby, NAMI Provider, and peer support programs to ensure that those with shared experiences do not feel the shame and stigma he experienced.
