LOBBY DAY | FEB. 23
A sea of green marched on the Olympia Capitol Hill for the annual Lobby Day on February 19th. One of NAMI Eastside's volunteers, Suanna, had graciously volunteered her time to make the 200+ scarves for all the participants! The scarves helped NAMI become more visible, and some of the NAMI members identify and connect with other NAMI supporters.
The NAMI Eastside group met with eleven legislators and representatives to share our stories and ask them to support different bills. Below are the bills we advocated for:
HB 1377: Improving Student Mental Health
HB 2779: Re-Authorization of the Children's Mental Health Task Force and Study of Parent Initiated Treatment
SB 6491: Assisted Outpatient Behavioral Health Treatment
HB 1783: Legal Financial Obligations
We also asked for fully funding a Comprehensive Behavioral Health System in Washington State.
