60 million people deserve a “yes”

Jun 13, 2016


You sent over 80,000 emails, 230,000 petition signatures and hundreds of tweets and phone calls asking Congress to pass mental health reform.

Congress heard you.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee is voting on a new version of H.R. 2646, the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act this week. NAMI is pleased that the new language accommodates different perspectives while taking strong steps to improve mental health care. The new provisions:

  • Enhance crisis response services and grants to track inpatient and residential beds;
  • Support grants for new assertive community treatment (ACT) teams; and
  • Authorize telehealth child psychiatry grants.

But, we need your voice to make sure that mental health reform passes smoothly.

Ask your member of Congress to make sure mental health reform passes this year.
