Take action, make change
As the official state NAMI organization in Pennsylvania, NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania is actively involved in engaging legislators at the state and federal levels to protect mental health coverage, services, and supports.
NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania frequently emails Action Alerts to inform people of relevant legislative activity that requires them to take action by contacting their elected officials.
If you are a member of NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania, you will receive Action Alerts automatically. Others can email their request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and your email address.
NAMI Keystone Pennsylvania hopes to educate individuals, families, legislators, the public, and the media about the consequences of stigmatizing language and the opportunity to instead focus on “people first” language.
These are examples of stigmatizing words or phrases to avoid:
- Mentally ill
- Emotionally disturbed
- Out of it
- Screw Loose
- Brain dead
- High or low functioning
