You can help us improve mental health care in California by taking our annual survey!

We are seeking to understand the experiences of individuals, families, and diverse communities navigating the disparities in the public mental health system. This is your chance to share your experiences on accessing mental health care and make suggestions for what needs to be improved, which we will use for the NAMI California Annual State of the Community Reports. The surveys are available in English, Spanish, Chinese (Simplified), and Arabic.
