Personal Stories on Mental Health Parity Needed

The stories and experiences of NAMI members are a vital component of the advocacy we do at the Capitol. Whether it’s an answer to a survey question, a conversation we have on the phone, or testimony before a legislative committee, your stories significantly impact our legislative work.

This year NAMI is specifically looking for stories about mental health parity. Have you ever been denied coverage for mental health or substance use disorder treatment without explanation? Are your wait times for in-network coverage unreasonably long? Are there any arbitrary limits to your services?

If you have a story to tell - or you would just like to chat about mental health parity - you can reach Sam Smith and discuss next steps. Finally, please remember that personal stories can be shared anonymously and don’t typically involve public speaking. There are a lot of ways for you to make an impact. Thank you for your support!
