Take Action On Advocacy Issues
If you have a story, you have the power to influence policymakers.
Policy change is one major way we can make a difference in the lives of people living with mental health conditions and their families. NAMI advocates for an array of issues including:
- Protecting people’s access to treatment and services
- Attaining mental health parity
- Securing better funding for research
We maintain an active presence in the U.S. Capitol on priority issues with relationships on both sides of the aisle. NAMI also has a strong presence in all 50 states, advocating for state laws, as well as county and local policies that will ensure that people get the help they need.
