Join Me for Hill Day!


Where Will You Be In October?                  

I'd like to invite you to join me at the National Council for Behavioral Health's annual Public Policy Institute and Hill Day, to be held October 2-3 in Washington, D.C.

Hill Day is the largest behavioral health advocacy event of the year, where hundreds of stakeholders join together in our mission to serve people living with mental illness and addictions by urging Congress to support our work and protect vital funding sources like Medicaid.
Hill Day 2017 is setting up to be biggest one yet! This year, the National Council is partnering with 20 other national organizations, including: Addiction Policy Forum, Association for Behavioral Health and Wellness, Association of Recovery Schools, Clubhouse International, Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, Faces and Voices of Recovery, Facing Addiction, Family-Focused Treatment Association (FFTA), Family-Run Executive Director Leadership Association (FREDLA), Hazelden Betty Ford Institute for Recovery Advocacy, International Bipolar Foundation, Legal Action Center, Mental Health America, NAMI, NAADAC the Association for Addiction Professionals, National Association of Social Workers, Network for Social Work Management, Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association, Shatterproof, and Young People in Recovery.
I am serving as Mississippi's State Captain for Hill Day, and I'll be keeping our delegation organized and providing you with regular updates. At Hill Day, you will:
  • Gain special insights into the legislative process, with updates from political journalists and national health care experts
  • Meet with your Members of Congress and their staff to speak up for our field's priorities
  • Network with other advocates from your state
  • Have fun!
Will you join us at Hill Day 2017? Registration is free! If you haven't registered already, click here to register and book your hotel room.
Thank you for all that you do to advance mental health and addictions care. I hope to see you at Hill Day! Please call or email me to let me know you can attend.
