Mental Health Reform is in danger of failing. Tell the Senate to act now!

Mental illness is still being denied by insurers at more than 2 times the rate of physical illness. People aren’t getting the mental health care they need when they need it.

Mental Health Reform, S. 2680, will help. But, time is running out.

Take 2 minutes on Tuesday, November 15th.

Call your Senators.

Tell them to demand a vote on S. 2680 now.

Here’s our suggested message: “As a constituent, I would like the Senator to demand a vote on S. 2680, the Mental Health Reform Act. Mental health parity laws are being broken every day. This bill will help.”

The suicide rate is at a 30-year high. You can help.

117 people die every single day by suicide in America. You can help stop this epidemic.

Contact your Senators. Demand a vote on the Mental Health Reform Act (S. 2680).

S. 2680 will:

  • Invest in mental health services and supports that are evidence-based, so people know they are getting care that works.
  • Prioritize early identification and intervention, so people can get the right mental health care at the right time.
  • Emphasize outcome measures, so we know if people are getting better or not.
  • Maintains the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, so people can help day or night.

World Suicide Prevention Day is September 10th. Honor the lives lost to suicide.

Contact your Senators now.
