An important part of our work at NAMI Chicago is the role we play as advocates for better quality mental health services, a more comprehensive system that is fully funded, and the support services needed to live in recovery.

Your voice matters. 
Here's how to get involved in NAMI Chicago's advocacy!

Policy Priorities
To identify the most urgent gaps in the local and statewide mental health system, NAMI Chicago conducted a stakeholder survey in July 2018. This is what we heard, and the policy priorities we developed for the upcoming year based on your feedback.
