NAMI AL Email Action alert (4-2-15)Did you know that state legislators count each email as representing the views of as many as 10 of their constituents?? Every email that we send packs a punch, so each person who contacts their legislator can make a huge difference!
Below is an action alert from NAMI Alabama which ALSO has a good example of an email draft that people can use and personalize. It really only takes about 10 minutes to write two legislators—one Alabama House representative, and one Alabama senator. Just make sure to change the “Dear Senator Whomever,” to “Dear Representative Whomever.” Please find a list of your Senators HERE.



Most of you have heard about the closings of the psychiatric offices and hospitals in the area. For those Alabama residents who have been affected and are wondering where to go for Mental Health Care please check this website out.
