National Council looking for signatures on White House petition

0 Comments | Posted

Network faithful - As soon as President Obama finished his remarks at the service for victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy, calls for increased attention and change to mental health services for children and their families have been flooding the White House. We here at the Network encourage you to get involved with as many of these efforts as possible. We need to flood the White House with citizen voice. Over the next two weeks we will be highlighting different organization efforts to bring a collective voice to the White House calling for changed. As always, read what groups are advocating for before signing on, but we think the more you know, the more opportunity you have to share your voice, the better.

The National Council for Behavioral Health has just begun a petition drive to give people who care about behavioral health a chance to sign on to a letter urging Congress and the President to strengthen federal support for mental health services. They need 25,000 signatures to get an official response from the White House and we are pleased to help them out. Here is what the Council is recommending in the letter to the President. Below that are instructions for how you can get involved and add your voice. The Network is on board and we hope you will be as well.
