You are not alone and we know recovery and wellbeing is possible. Together, we can continue to build a comprehensive system of behavioral health care in our state. While significant investments and improvements to the state’s behavioral health system have been made, many Washingtonians still face crises in the face of systemic barriers that impede access to care.

Hello and welcome to the virtual home for NAMI Washington’s policy and advocacy.
We are excited to advocate with you!
