It has never been easier to contact state and federal officials to educate them about mental health issues. By contacting your legislators and sharing your stories, experiences, and concerns, you can help MHC positively influence policies and laws impacting mental health services in our communities.

Congress.org is a nonpartisan news and information website devoted to encouraging civic participation. Their mission is to provide information about public policy issues of the day and tips on effective advocacy so that citizens can make their voices heard.
Since 1908, MHC has been a leader in advocating for improved, expanded and accessible mental health services. Community-based services have proven to be effective in helping people with mental health conditions achieve recovery and live successfully in the community.
MHC’s top legislative priority for 2015 is to increase access to services and supports that positively impact the four pillars of recovery, which are home, health, community and purpose.
Assist with administrative tasks and external correspondence designed to educate the community about mental health issues, as well as other volunteer positions at our organisation.
