We have an incredible opportunity this month to improve the lives of tens of millions of Americans. Contact your Senators and urge them to bring the Mental Health Reform Act of 2016 (S. 2680) to the floor and vote YES.
In July, your advocacy ensured that the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act of 2015 (H.R. 2646) passed the House of Representatives by a nearly unanimous vote. Now, we need the Senate to pass the companion legislation, the Mental Health Reform Act of 2016 (S. 2680).
S. 2680 has bipartisan support in the Senate and lays an important foundation for future legislative efforts. Mental Health America and the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities are partnering with other national organizations to urge the Senate to pass mental health reform legislation this year.
So contact your Senators today and ask them to vote YES on S. 2680. Let’s bring mental health reform to the President’s desk!
As always, thank you for your advocacy!
