The House passed the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act 422-2.
Now this bill is languishing in the Senate. Everyone is urged to call their senator tomorrow Friday September 2 to urge him or her to vote on S 2680 the companion bill.
Call (202) 224-3121 #1 and enter your zip code. A suggested talking point is that you’re a constituent and want this bill passed into law to give Americans better access to mental health treatment.
A senator in my state Kirsten Gillibrand is a co-sponsor.
