About Us

NSSC is a nonpartisan alliance of ​​family members, individuals suffering from serious brain disorders (SBD), professionals in the trenches, and caring people united to ensure that brain illness, health, and criminal justice systems count those with SBD, and their families in all federal, state, and local policy reforms.

We are voices for the 14.2 million adults and 8 million children living with and dying too young from serious brain disorders.

Why we are taking part

We are an all volunteer alliance. Your donation is used solely for supporting our nonprofits advocacy efforts on behalf of those with serious brain disorders.

NSSC supports a right to treatment before tragedy for all age groups living with serious brain disorders commonly known as "serious mental illnesses".

We envision a world in which people with serious brain illnesses can receive equitable, compassionate, collaborative treatment and support that enable them to live their best lives.

The Million Steps Challenge:

Your Life, Your Challenge, Your Way™

Walking is great for our physical and mental health. But we tell ourselves we can’t find the time, we’re tired, we’ll start tomorrow.

But, big things can happen from very small beginnings. Walk, jog, run, hop or even dance your way to a million steps. It all adds up to an awesome 500 miles!

Challenge yourself, connect with friends, and raise money for a good cause. No more travelling to events, overnight stays, worries about training, expensive entry costs or high fundraising targets

It’s a 100-day celebration of MOVEment and Wellbeing!

And every participant receives an introduction to leading a mindful life with audio tracks and and strength and conditioning videos too!
