Mental Health Parity - NAMI Indiana seeks and promotes equal access to services and benefits for people living with mental illnesses, in both the private and public sectors. 

Psychiatric Crisis Services - In 2014, SEA 248 was signed into law, directing the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction to conduct a study of the psychiatric crisis intervention services in Indiana. Click here to download the report. 

Neuro-Diagnostic Institute and Closure of Larue Carter Hospital - In December 2015, Governor Pence announced plans to build a neuro-diagnostic institute as a modern addition to the state's mental health system. While the new facility will not be a replacement for Larue Carter Hospital, the opening of the NDI will correspond with the closure of Larue Carter Hospital.
