NAMI Lobby Day


Join Advocates from All Over Washington

Every year on NAMI Lobby Day, you can join other advocates from all over Washington. NAMI community members meet with our Representatives and Senators to advocate for legislation that will positively impact our mental health system.

The best advocates are people like you: it makes a real difference when legislators hear their constituents’ stories and see the direct impact that these bills can have on individuals with mental health conditions and their families.

NAMI Lobby Day is organized by NAMI Washington and typically takes place on President’s Day.


Advocacy Toolkit PDF

Advocacy is a way to support, influence and create change in your community or state by reaching out to local officials, raising awareness and educating people on areas that need to be improved within the mental health system.
The resources in our toolkit include basic information on Washington States legislative system, tips for reaching out to officials and NAMIs legislative goals.


You are not alone
