MHSA Advocacy, pg. 1 • State level – MHSOAC meetings in Sacramento – Committee meetings, especially Client & Family Leadership, in Sacramento or call in – Community Forums, held regionally, do NOT miss any in your region

MHSA Advocacy, pg. 2 • Local level – Contact the MHSA Coordinator in your county – Find the first opportunity to give meaningful input – Study the Mental Health Services Act requirement for counties to involve stakeholders, http://www.namicalifornia.org/news.php?page=c urrent-news&lang=eng&id=4951#.UhKj95I4SSo – Make sure that both you and your county comply with these requirements 8/17/2013

Meaningful Stakeholder Involvement NAMI’s job is to focus on what people need – Use our experience – Ensure broad picture and recovery focus – Ensuring the minimum required by law and regulation is background, not focus
