NAMI Launches new Vote4MentalHealth Website
NAMI is excited to announce the launch of the new vote4mentalhealth.org website. The new site promotes the pledge to #Vote4MentalHealth. When people take the pledge, they will receive voting-related reminders and information for their state now through Election Day.
The site also has much more. It includes:
- Key Issues: #Vote4MentalHealth is about more than a single policy issue. It’s about knowing how different issues affect people with mental health conditions. Voters can explore the issues they care about.
- Engaging Candidates: Understanding how different policymakers impact mental health services and supports – and what you can do to educate them about mental illness – is critical to #Vote4MentalHealth. Voters can learn ways to engage and educate candidates.
- Voter Resources: Voters can look up the information they need to register to vote or cast a ballot in their state. Voters can find information about voter registration, early voting (if applicable), absentee ballots/vote-by-mail, and basic information on candidates.
- Get Involved: Individual voters and NAMI organizations can find the tools and information they need to engage in their communities, including a sample candidate questionnaire, social media toolkits, and links to other important guides and resources for nonprofits.
