ADVOCACY

NAMI strives to raise public awareness of mental health issues and advocates for adequate treatment facilities, health insurance, housing, rehabilitation services, and jobs for people with psychiatric illnesses. One of the key goals of NAMI’s advocacy efforts is to eradicate stigma and discrimination. NAMI Sussex participates in NAMI New Jersey’s annual NAMIWalk to bust stigma and raise awareness, as well as donations, for the work we do.

NAMI Sussex frequently hosts guest speaker presentations on a variety of topics of interest to mental health consumers and their family members. Check the Events page on this website for monthly updates.

All NAMI Sussex programs are provided free of charge by unpaid volunteers. For further information about our events and programs, call 973-214-0632, email nami.sussex@gmail.com, check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/namisussex or click on the Facebook icon.
