Policy and Advocacy

Federal Policy

NAMI is advocating for the passage of the following federal legistation:

  • The Mental Health in Schools Act (HR 628/S. 195)
    • This bill would increase federal funding for mental health services in schools, providing more youth with the opportunity to receive support.
  • The Keeping All Students Safe Act (HR1893)
    • This bill would limit the use of physical restraint and seclusion in schools, which disproportionately affect students with disabilities.
    • Please click here to contact your Congressional members and urge them to take action.
