Public policy makes a difference in the lives of both the people living with mental health conditions and the people in their lives. Changes in policy can mean better outcomes. Our advocacy efforts:

  • Securing better funding for research.

  • Protecting access to treatments and services.

  • Fighting for mental health parity to ensure that mental illness is treated equally to physical illness in insurance plans.
