NAMI ADVOCACY ACTION CENTER

Where NAMI Stands on Public Policy

NAMI advocates for all who are affected by mental illness, both the individuals and the people in their lives. Our advocacy efforts have led to many victories including:

  • Securing better funding for the National Institute of Mental Health
  • Protecting access to medications and other treatments in Medicare and Medicaid
  • Attaining mental health parity to ensure that mental illness is treated equally to physical illness in most insurance plans

But we still have work to do, and we need your help. Learn about mental health advocacy. Talk to your neighbors, friends and family about why these issues are important. Find out how you can get involved with your local NAMI’s advocacy efforts.

To learn more about NAMI’s stance on advocacy and public policy issues that affect adults and children living with mental illness and their family, read the NAMI Public Policy Platform (PDF).
