Discussions about mental health have become more prevalent in the media, including legislative debates over mental health parity, the recent classification of video game addiction as a mental health condition, and controversy surrounding the placement of a proposed psychiatric facility. Peggy Huppert, Executive Director of NAMI IOWA (National Alliance on Mental Illness), will help us better understand the mental health issues in Iowa and how we can be better advocates for all.

Peggy Huppert arrived at NAMI IOWA in 2016 with 34 years of experience with nonprofit organizations, primarily within the Des Moines community. Most recently she was the Iowa State Director for No Labels. Prior to that Peggy held leadership and management positions with the American Cancer Society. She has considerable volunteer experience within the arts and social justice arenas. Peggy has a B.A. in News Editorial Journalism.
