This week mental health advocates are holding a statewide call-in to urge legislators to increase funding for mental health services. We want them to know that family members, friends, and people living with mental illnesses will be directly affected by the choices they make. The messaging is simple -
• State why you are calling or emailing (you live with a mental illness, have a family member, work in the field)
• Mention a particular area that you believe needs more funding (crisis services, crisis beds, supportive housing, respite care, suicide prevention, employment, etc.)
• Urge him or her to support increased funding for our mental health system - we know what works, let's build on it!
Please take 2 minutes of your time and let your legislators know what works and that it matters to you! Have everyone in your household call. If you don't call, who will? If you don't let legislators know that funding for our mental health system is important, who will? We have spent years building our movement, let's move forward! Find your legislators, here.
