NAMI Buffalo’s Advocacy Committee meets usually twice a month. Our “heavy” advocacy season yearly is January through March, when the state legislature is working on state policy and the budget. Our voices are critical to making needed changes in mental health care and service delivery.
You do not need prior experience to be part of our advocacy work: NAMI will teach you about the process and how to tell your story so that your experience is meaningful for improving mental health and other systems of care. Information about our state legislative focus this year can be found at: https://www.naminys.org/
