“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” – Desmond Tutu
RADIAS Health continues to stand firm against racism and injustice.
In January 2021, the RADIAS Health Race Equity Advisory Committee will begin meeting. Formed of community stakeholders representing an array of racial and ethnic backgrounds, the Race Equity Advisory Committee will share insights and community perspectives to influence current and developing programs. The committee will also look at program outcomes by race and provide feedback on identified areas for practice change.

Mental Health Day on the Hill
Make your voice heard! This year’s Mental Health Day on the Hill will be a virtual one, held on Thursday, March 11, 2021. The event will kick off at 9 AM with virtual messages, as well as an overview of current mental health policy and funding issues. After that, you will have a chance to meet with your legislators and share why mental health is important to you!
Legislators are already filling up their schedules, so now is the time for you to start requesting (virtual) meetings anytime between 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM on March 11th. All you have to do is find out who your legislator is, contact them and their legislative assistant, and let them know you are a constituent who would like a meeting during the Mental Health Day on the Hill. Once you have a meeting scheduled – or if you would like some help getting your meeting scheduled – you should fill out this form. This will help keep us in the loop about what meetings are being held, as well as making sure that other NAMI members can tag along to meetings that have already been scheduled. Thank you for your advocacy!
