Brief Summary of the 2015 Legislative Session Bills and Mental Health Issues
For all of you who have been asking how mental health fared this session, please click here to read a brief summary of the 2015 legislative bills and mental health issues. We will send out a more comprehensive summary at a later date.
Also, please click here to see a list of legislators and others whom we want to thank for their hard work to keep mental health funded in this budget and for being a champion of certain bills. It is important to let them know that we appreciate what they accomplished, especially in the special session when budget negotiations were very uncertain.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. THANK YOU for all your persistence, perseverance and determination in advocating for mental health! We couldn’t have done this without YOU!!
