(WASHINGTON, DC) –  Representative Tim Murphy will make a major announcement about the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act (H.R. 3717) this Friday, March 28, 2014 at 10:00AM, during a special event at the American Enterprise Institute. Rep. Murphy has been invited by AEI to be the featured speaker for a panel discussion entitled, “Fixing the mental health care system: What Congress can do.” The forum, which will include former Rep. Patrick Kennedy, will be held in the AEI offices in Washington, D.C.

The federal government’s approach to mental health has been a chaotic patchwork of antiquated programs and ineffective policies across numerous agencies. Patients often fall through the cracks and land on the street or in the criminal justice system. The panel will discuss how Rep. Murphy’s Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act will address persistent problems like psychiatric bed shortages, the scarcity of evidence-based treatment, and the questionable priorities of America’s leading mental healthcare agencies.
