In mid-February and again in September, NAMI Texas sent out a six-question questionnaire on mental health policy to every candidate running a contested state legislative race. This was intended to introduce candidates to our key mental health priorities and help you gain insight on their perspectives around mental health. NAMI Texas does not endorse or support any candidates or parties, and the inclusion or exclusion of a candidate’s answers does not indicate a position on the candidate by NAMI Texas.
