The Policy, Advocacy, and Communication (PAC) Team at NAMI Mass aims to provide direction and guidance on policy issues affecting mental health in the Commonwealth to Affiliates, state agencies, community stakeholders, advocates, and the general public. Legislation is organized by primary area of focus, but categories do often overlap. Top priority bills are marked with an asterisk (*).
We acknowledge that these bills are only a small fraction of the legislation that can potentially impact an individual living with a mental health condition, because everyone’s needs are different. If you are interested in a piece of legislation not on this list, please feel free to connect with Amanda or Jacqueline for more information. The PAC Team is happy to provide you support in learning more about any piece of legislation.
