Mental Health Advocacy Opportunities

Legislative Issues discussed at Jail School 2015

I am attaching Teresa's power point.  I also have some extra info.  Teresa and I both mentioned the Mental Health and Safe Communities Act (Bill S2002)- it's just getting through the Senate and really would provide so much for law enforcement.  If you Google that title you can find details.  Please ask people to write Grassley and Ernst and ask them to support this bill.  They would take great notice if law enforcement was behind this bill - and it only takes a few emails for them to take notice.  But, the more who send a short email - 1 or 2 sentences - the better. 

Let me know if there is anything I can do. This is a crisis - and we all need to help! Thank you for all you do - you are awesome!
