Advocacy – Action Alerts

Become an Advocate!

There are many gaps in mental health services, and a profound need for more education for mental health consumers, their families, health care providers and legislators.  NAMI Orange County asks for your support and advocacy to improve the services we need for ourselves and our loved ones.

You can help in so many ways.  If you have been helped by NAMI, have attended our 12 Week Family-to-Family Class or monthly program and support meetings, received helpful literature or called our Helpline, please consider becoming a NAMI member or volunteer to help us further our mission of support, education and advocacy. Please contact us for further information.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
