Take Action in the Wake of Newtown
After the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, NAMI and other members of the mental health community met at the White House as part of Vice President Joseph Biden’s task force to examine what can be done to prevent such mass shootings in the future.
Headlines surrounding the task force’s work have focused on gun control and violent video games, but the meeting focused strongly on the urgent need to strengthen and expand mental health services.
In the coming weeks, the President and Congress should step forward and make a clear commitment to mental health care.
Do your part. Contact your federal elected officials and urge them to speak out for mental health care by clicking here http://www.capwiz.com/nami/issues/alert/?alertid=62332766&PROCESS=Take+Action
