NAMI Smarts for Advocacy is a hands-on advocacy training program that helps people living with mental illness, friends and family transform their passion and lived experience into skillful grassroots advocacy.

NAMI Smarts for Advocacy is designed as a series of three 1-2 hour workshops or modules or as a single full-day training that develop the following skills:

  • Telling a compelling story that is inspiring and makes an “ask” in 90 seconds
  • Writing an effective email, making an elevator speech and making an impactful phone call
  • Orchestrating a successful meeting with an elected official

The unique step-by-step, skill-building design and NAMI Smarts is effective with a wide range of participants, including those who are new to advocacy as well as individuals with years of experience.

Pre-registration is required.  To register, contact Patricia Adams, [email protected] or Rosalie Bousher, [email protected].  

This is a FREE training.  The training will take place on Saturday, September 14, 9:00am – 3:00pm, Northwest Church of Christ, 6355 38th Avenue N, St. Petersburg.
