2018 Behavioral Health Day at the Capitol
Sponsored by NAMI Florida and its partners
More than 150 people joined NAMI Florida and its partners for Behavioral Health Day at the Capitol on Jan. 24. Our advocates met with more than half of the members and staff of the Florida Legislature to discuss NAMI Florida's legislative agenda (click here).
Our event was followed by a press conference featuring Sen. Wilton Simpson and Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, who called on their fellow lawmakers to pass key legislation about mental health policies and funding. NAMI Greater Orlando member Katherine Osborne shared her personal story of living with a mental health challenge.
