NAMI Vermont strongly embraces the principles of recovery and believes that all mental health and related services and supports should be provided with the goal of helping individuals achieve recovery and resiliency in their lives.
NAMI Vermont’s advocacy efforts help to promote recovery and build better lives for individuals and families affected by mental illness. We advocate on many different levels which include some of the following:
NAMI Vermont supports, to the fullest extent possible, solidarity with other mental health advocacy communities to effect positive changes in societal attitudes, legislation, education, and community and organizational responsiveness.
Each individual experiences mental illness and recovery differently, and NAMI Vermont supports treatment and supportive services that address each individual’s needs. Many individuals living with mental illness experience recovery that may include: private or community services, medication, peer support, housing, education, employment and other supports. NAMI Vermont advocates to ensure that people who are not experiencing recovery, but instead cope with hardships such as homelessness, substance abuse and incarceration, receive every support possible to put them on the path to recovery.
