Become an Advocate

There is much work to be done:

  • Deflating Stigma
  • Letting your legislators know your opinions
  • Participating in NAMI WALKS and other advocacy events
  • Reading up on attitudes and agendas in popular media
  • Writing letters to the editor on topics of special concern to you
  • Building community that promotes tolerance and compassion

Be creative in the ways you advocate.

Write us – Let us know of ways in which you promote positive attitudes and a healthy community. We’d love to hear from you:

Also, please share our posts across your social media and tell people about us! We can’t post everywhere so we count on you to help spread the word about NAMI. Tell us how you shared our Facebook and blog posts on all the following:
