NAMI Report: Mental Health State Legislation 2015

Released in December 2015,  “State Mental Health Legislation: Trends, Themes and Effective Practices” is NAMI’s third annual state legislation report tracking state mental health budgets and identifying legislative trends across the country. In good news, the report found that several states passed innovative measures that can serve as models for development and change across the country. In more alarming news, NAMI found that overall investment in state mental health budgets has been declining for the past three years. NAMI hopes this report will serve as an important tool for state leaders and advocates as we work together to improve mental health care in this country.
