Take Action on Public Policy Issues

Public policy makes a difference in the lives of both the people living with mental health conditions and the people in their lives. Changes in policy can mean better outcomes. Our efforts have led to many victories including:

  • Securing better funding for research.
  • Protecting access to treatments and services.
  • 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. Talk to your neighbors, friends and family about why these issues are important.

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