A Letter to the President and Vice President

The senseless shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. has left Americans with broken hearts and many questions. While it should not have taken a tragic event to recognize the mental health crisis in America, it is time for Congress and the rest of America to act.

As the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization NAMI will be at the vanguard pushing for improved mental health care for all Americans.

The executive director of NAMI, Mike Fitzpatrick, has sent letters to President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden urging them to address mental health care head on and ensure that our country remains strong.
