Mental healthcare should be a right, not a privilege!

Target: United States Congress

May is mental health awareness month – a critically important topic to highlight, because millions of Americans live with a mental illness, plus the stigmas and misunderstandings that accompany mental health conditions. In fact, 1 in 5 Americans will experience mental illness during their lifetimes.

And “thanks” to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has produced widespread job loss, isolation, and grief, it’s now more critical than ever that we increase access to treatment for anyone who needs it AND reduce the stigmas that often prevent people from seeking help.

Add your name to tell Congress that mental healthcare should be provided as a right – free of charge!

Mental illness comes in many forms, from depression and schizophrenia to anxiety and eating disorders. Nearly 50,000 Americans die of suicide each year, the second leading cause of death for young adults. One in eight US adults meets the criteria for alcoholism. And these struggles have a wide reach – the family and friends who want to help – the innocent victims of DUI traffic collisions.

We need accessible, quality mental healthcare for all.

Sign here to tell Congress that good mental health is a right, not a privilege – pass legislation for free mental healthcare for all!
