Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to urge you to cosponsor and support Sen. Debbie Stabenow's amendment to the Senate health reform plan that would establish centers of excellence for the treatment of depression and bipolar disorders. The amendment is based on the Establishing a Network of Health-Advancing National Centers of Excellence for Depression (ENHANCED) Act of 2009 (S. 1857).
Sen. Stabenow's amendment would offer a substantial contribution towards closing the gap between knowledge and practice of effective mental health treatments. I applaud Sen. Stabenow for offering this amendment to establish national centers of excellence for the treatment of depressive and bipolar disorders and urge you to cosponsor this amendment and vote in favor of it.
