for Virginians with serious mental illness.
Advocacy Day 2015 Mental Health Advocacy Day A Success!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for Mental Health Advocacy Day! Your presence -- 120 strong -- and your advocacy made a difference and we are grateful you took the time to spend the day at the General Assembly for Mental Health Advocacy Day. We heard over and over again from the legislators how important it is to put a personal face on the issues that the legislature is debating. 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.
