Public Policy Platform & Principles

The Public Policy Platform articulates where NAMI Texas stands on issues related to its goal of helping individuals and families affected by mental illness build better lives.  The purpose of this public policy platform is to provide direction and guidance on policy issues affecting people in Texas living with a mental illness to the NAMI Texas Board and NAMI Staff, to our local affiliates, to state agencies and other advocacy groups, and to inform the general public about relevant public policy.  NAMI Texas advocates for all people and families who are living with mental illness.
