Your voice matters and NAMI Philadelphia encourages you to share your voice and your story! When we share our voices with others, we can create change! Mental health matters and NAMI believes that we have the ability to impact decision makers, so let's work together to break the stigma and let our legislators know what is important to us!
Our advocacy 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 more work to do, and we need YOUR help!
