Advocacy


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.
