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’s legislative and public policy priority is to support Americans affected by mental illness’ opportunities to build better lives. NAMI advocates for an array of issues including:
Securing better funding for research
Protecting people’s access to treatment and services
Attaining mental health parity
NAMI maintains an active presence in the U.S. Capitol, the Oregon Capitol and with our Clackamas County Board of Commissioners on priority issues, advocating for national and state laws, as well as county and local policies and ordinances that will ensure that people get the help they need.
We have work to do! Stay tuned for ways you can help!
