About the Event :

NAMI Smarts for Advocacy is a hands-on advocacy training program that helps people living with mental illness, friends and family transform their passion and lived experience into skillful grassroots advocacy.

NAMI Smarts for Advocacy is designed as a series of six workshops or modules that develop the following skills:

• Telling a compelling story that is inspiring and makes an “ask” in 90 seconds

• Writing an effective email, making an elevator speech and making an impactful phone call

• Orchestrating a successful meeting with an elected official

The unique step-by-step, skill-building design of NAMI Smarts is effective with a wide range of participants, including those who are new to advocacy as well as individuals with years of experience.

Participants routinely share that they’ve never been able to condense their story or made a clear “ask," but with NAMI Smarts, they are now able to.

Lobbyists who represent NAMI State Organizations or mental health coalitions also love this program—they see participants come out confident and able to share their story in a way that moves policymakers.

When you leave this training, our goal is that you take with you a version of your story that you can use to raise awareness, inspire others, and above all, influence policy makers.

This training is free to NAMI members. Not a member, please consider becoming a member with your local affiliate

We will use the same link for all of the modules. We will meet the 2nd Friday of the month from 9am -1pm.
