Advocacy

How You Can Help

Regardless of your political views, it is important that you make every effort to connect with candidates. Help them understand that mental illness affects millions of individuals, from all cultures, races and income levels across our great nation.  It is our job and obligation to inform candidates of issues and how their decisions will affect us. Your outreach, your votes will help influence how individuals and families affected by mental illness will experience treatment and support in the future; so please get involved.

You can help. Talk to candidates about mental illness and NAMI’s priorities—and vote. Your efforts will help shape how candidates vote on important issues like coverage for mental health care and mental health services.
