Call to Action: NAMI National Call-In Day: Tuesday, January 17th

Hello NAMI Supporters and Advocates,

A national debate is raging over the future of health care. It’s our job to make sure that mental health remains at the forefront of the conversation on Capitol Hill.

That’s why NAMI is partnering with the National Council for Behavioral Health, Mental Health America, Addiction Policy Forum and the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance to host a National Call-In Day on Tuesday, Jan. 17.

How can you help?

1. Call Congress.

Ask them to protect Medicaid and insurance safeguards that help millions of Americans who get mental health care.

Call (202) 224-3121, press #2 and enter your zip code

Here’s our suggested message:
“As a constituent, I would like the Representative to protect people with mental illness who can’t afford to lose health coverage. Please preserve Medicaid and insurance safeguards that help people get mental health care. Thank you.”

Want to do more? Call your Senators with the same message.

Call (202) 224-3121, press #1 and enter your zip code.

2. Promote the National Call-In through your Social Media Channels.

We’ve put together a list of suggested social media posts to make it easy for you to encourage your friends and families to take action.
