New York Named a National Leader in Mental Health Policy in National Alliance on Mental Illness 2015 Legislative Report
(Albany, NY) On December 8, 2015, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the nation’s largest family and consumer grassroots mental health organization, released its newest report, State Mental Health Legislation: Trends, Themes and Effective Practices. This is NAMI’s third annual state legislation report tracking state mental health budgets and identifying legislative trends across the country.
The report found that several states, including New York, 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.
The report can be found at NAMI Dec 2015 report.
