Contacting Your Officials- Virtual NAMI Smarts Training

February 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Registration: https://720.nami.org/register/98298/details

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.

This program is designed as a series of three 1-2 hour workshops or modules or as a single full-day training 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.
