On January 30th of this year Reps. Doris Matsui, Leonard Lance, Jon Runyan and Paul Tonko sent letters to Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton and Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp asking them to include a 10-state Medicaid demonstration project to expand mental health services to beneficiaries based on the Excellence in Mental Health Act. In the letter they state:

A big thanks from the Children's Mental Health Network to these members of Congress who are championing improved mental health services in America.

The National Council for Behavioral Health has been campaigning hard for bringing attention to the need for passage of the Excellence in Mental Health Act. The Children's Mental Health Network encourages all faithful readers to visit the Council Action Page where in just two minutes you can make your voice heard to members of Congress. Time is of the essence on this one folks.
