This Friday marks the two-year anniversary of the passage of the health reform law (the Affordable Care Act) and next week the Supreme Court of the United States will hear arguments on whether it is constitutional, with a ruling expected early this summer.
The success of health reform is critical to the future of millions of Americans living with mental health and substance use conditions who are helped by the law's expansion of access to treatment.
Mental Health America has joined in a friend of the court brief (called "amicus") arguing in the support of the law. While we don't know how the Court will rule, we do know that we can all influence its decision.
You can strengthen our work by speaking out in support of health reform. Here's what you can do:
Sign the "People's Amicus Brief": Show the Justices that the law is working and that Americans support the Affordable Care Act.
