Advocacy

These advocacy groups work on behalf of those who have been affected by mental health challenges in order to end stigma and provide more opportunities. Some also provide direct support in various forms.

The National Coalition for Mental Health Recovery (NCMHR) aims to support individuals and advocate for positive change in our mental health care system, including creation of peer respite homes and more.  There is a wealth of information, resources, videos, conferences and more found on their website.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) offers support throughout the US in the form of local groups and centers.  In Pierce County, WA/US there is a robust team of volunteers that form an organization supporting families and individuals on their journey through mental health challenges.
