The Mental Health Law and Justice Association is the hub of mental health and disability advocacy, activism, education, support, and professional development at NYU Law. One in four American adults has a mental illness. Our organization is committed to building a safe space where both students with lived experiences and their allies can organize, learn, educate, share, and develop. We are committed to building a coalition of students who are not only concerned with learning how the law works, but who are committed to fighting for justice and to holding accountable the systems that marginalize people with mental illnesses.
