TO ADVOCATE CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATORS:
 

NAMI LEGISLATIVE ADVOCACY - TAKE ACTION

Both the House and Senate have begun their month-long summer recess and members of Congress will be in their states and districts until September 8. Pressure is mounting on Senators and House members on the critical issue of health care reform and the voices of consumers and families need to be heard. Action is Requested.

Individuals living with mental illness and their families are strongly encouraged to reach out to members of Congress as they make appearances in their states and congressional districts over the next few weeks. Advocates should reach out to members of Congress through:

  • Requesting meetings with them in their state and district offices;
  • Attending congressional town meetings and “listening sessions”;
  • Calling into appearances on local radio programs;
  • Talking to them at community parades, picnics and other public appearances (ribbon cuttings, Rotary Clubs, etc.);
  • Writing letters to the editor of local papers.
