Health Advocacy Day 

Thank you to everyone who joined us!  We had 130 advocates, parents, youth, family members, and individuals living with mental illness, who met with their legislators to talk about the issues that matter to them. We know it is not easy to speak up about mental illness issues due to stigma that still pervades everyday life, but your participation and action help to combat that stigma. While the legislative period is in session make sure to stay on top of issues here.  And in the off season, consider continuing your efforts with varoius advocacy activities that continue to make a difference! 2017 details will be released in late 2016.
