The National Council for Mental Wellbeing is urging all of us to register now for “Hill Day at Home,” their virtual advocacy event. From your home or office, you can hear from policy makers, peers and advocates on mental health and substance abuse issues.
From their announcement:
Last year, we partnered with 29 national advocacy organizations to help 2,000+ people from all 50 states unite online for our annual event, resulting in 5,273 advocacy actions being taken and 416 members of Congress reached.
Don’t miss your chance to make a mark this year – register now for Hill Day at Home on Tuesday, October 19, to raise your voice, elevate concerns and connect with influencers on Capitol Hill. Join us as we:
- Address the most pressing questions facing our field in the wake of COVID-19.
- Hear from key policy leaders on the latest developments from Capitol Hill.
- Get a view inside the Biden Administration and their mental health agenda.
- Celebrate your peers during our 2021 Advocacy Leadership Awards.
This is both an opportunity to get involved in improving national policy around mental health and to learn more about what’s going on in different parts of the country as we advocate to improve these systems.
Learn more here about last year’s Hill Day on the National Council’s website (we expect that they may update these pages soon with this year’s info) and register here for the October 19th virtual event.
