Event description
Join us for NAMI Tennessee's Day at the Hill --- Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville

About this Event

  • Do you wish state lawmakers had a better understanding of mental illness and its challenges?
  • Are you passionate about having more prevention, intervention, and recovery services for Tennesseans with mental illness?
  • Do you want to learn how to move lawmakers to make changes by telling your story about mental illness and the road to recovery?

Join us for NAMI Tennessee's Day on the Hill !

You don't need to be an expert on laws or state budgets. You're already an expert on mental health challenges, and lawmakers need to hear from YOU!

You'll learn how to effectively and confidently talk with the state's top decision makers about about about mental health needs in schools, the criminal justice system, and more.
