The definition of advocacy is the act of speaking on the behalf of or in support of another person, place, or thing.

An example of an advocacy is a nonprofit organization that works to help those who can not speak for themselves. NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raising awareness and building a community of hope for all of those in need.

NAMI champions better care and better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental health conditions. Join our advocacy. Be a part of the change.


Public policy makes a difference in the lives of both the people living with mental health conditions and the people in their lives. Changes in policy can mean better outcomes. Our advocacy efforts have led to many victories including: Securing better funding for research. Protecting access to treatments and services. Attaining mental health parity to ensure that mental illness is treated equally to physical illness in most insurance plans.

But we still have work to do, and we need your help. Learn about mental health advocacy. Talk to your neighbors, friends and family about why these issues are important. Find out how you can get involved with your local NAMI's advocacy efforts. (call to volunteer - 740-397-3088 or e-mail us at namiklcohio@embarqmail.com)
