March 9 -- MHANYS Legislative Day

NYAPRS Note: Our partners and friends at MHANYS are holding their Mental Health Matters Legislative Day next week on Wednesday, March 9th. Given our common goals, particularly the “Keep the Promise of Community Mental Health” priority for which we’re asking $90 million to address long needed staff and infrastructure improvements, we encourage you to support their Day. Please see below for more information.

MHANYS Mental Health Matters Legislative Day

Mental Health Matters Day is a day-long legislative advocacy event held each March at New York State’s capital in Albany, New York. Attendees travel to Albany from across the state to be briefed on critical legislative initiatives impacting mental health policies and to meet with legislators. Everyone interested in helping to advocate for these changes is welcome to attend this free event and participate by sharing why mental health matters to them personally and to the people in their lives.

The policy agenda for the day focuses on MHANYS’ most pressing legislative initiatives including the association’s response to the Governor’s proposed Executive Budget. You are invited to join us for this educational and inspirational day of advocacy where your voice, joined by hundreds of others, can be heard by New York’s elected officials. To read about the issues we are focusing on please seeMHANYS’ 2016 Legislative Agenda.
