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.
State Policy

For more information about advocacy at the state level, please visit NAMI's State Advocacy Center.
