Take Action TODAY to Save Mental Health

In most state legislatures across the country, elected leaders are considering tough decisions required to balance state government budgets in these challenging economic times.

In many states, decisions that will impact adults and children who live with mental illness and their families are still being explored. In other states, legislators have gone home—but the work is not over.

Now is the ideal time to reach out to your legislator and governor and raise your voice for mental health. Cuts to state mental health budgets threaten to devastate children, adults, families and our communities. When mental health care is cut, we all feel the consequences.
