GRASSROOTS ADVOCACY IS SIMPLE.

You don't have to know about policies or politics. It's about using your voice to influence policy makers and make a difference. Turn your passion and your lived experience into a positive voice for mental health.

3 Interactive Modules to Build Advocacy Skills:

  • Telling Your Stories: Real stories are the most potent motivator for legislators. Telling Your Story guides you through writing and delivering a concise and compelling version of your story that will serve as the springboard for your advocacy.
  • Email & Phone Calls: Don't think your emails and phone calls are making an impact? Emails and Phone Calls shows you how to write emails that get attention and make phone calls that policy makers remember.
  • Meet Your Legislator: Want your meetings with policy makers to deliver results? Meeting Your Legislator demonstrates how to orchestrate a successful dialogue with elected officials.
