------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The mission of the 2018 Behavioral Health Day at the Capitol is to educate and empower peers and family members to become effective advocates for better behavioral health funding and policies in Florida. Attendees will see first-hand how state government works, learn how to communicate with lawmakers, and meet with policymakers who influence behavioral health laws and funding.

Here's what's in store:

  • We'll start at 8:30 am with breakfast and networking, followed by presentations from mental health policy experts and legislators beginning at 9:00 am. 
  • We'll provide information on the most pressing mental health issues at the Capitol and explain how to effectively advocate for better mental health funding and policies. 
  • We'll hold a press conference at noon, 4th floor Rotunda.

If you want to meet with lawmakers, please include your home address in the event registration. This will allow us to determine the legislators' districts in which you reside. We will schedule appointments for you to meet with lawmakers on Jan. 24. PLEASE do not make your own appointments. 

WEBINARS

Just so you'll feel prepared, NAMI Florida has offered two webinars in advance of Behavioral Health Day to educate attendees about advocacy protocols and communicating with legislators.
