Want to make a difference? Write a letter. Tell your story. Here's the how and why:

More than 11 million Americans have severe schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression yet millions are going without treatment and families struggle to find care for loved ones.

The federal government’s approach to mental health has been a chaotic patchwork of antiquated programs and ineffective policies across numerous agencies. Sadly, patients end up in the criminal justice system or on the streets because services are not available.

The Helping Families In Mental Health Crisis Act fixes the nation’s broken mental health system by focusing programs and resources on psychiatric care for patients & families most in need of services.


To share your thoughts on mental health reform or share a personal story with the bill's sponsor, Congressman Murphy, please click here or go to:

*NOTE:  The drop down box on this site only allows PA to be entered as your state.  Go ahead and use it, but refer to your correct address and contact information in your message.  I have alerted Murphy's office to this and hopefully they will fix it to receive national and international responses.
