Join Us at National Council Hill Day October 2nd-3rd!
This year the NYS Council is happy to serve as one of New York’s State Captains for the National Council Hill Day to be held from October 2nd-3rd 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.
At Hill Day participants will:
- Gain special insights into the legislative process, with updates from political journalists and national health care experts
- Meet with Members of Congress and their staff to speak up for our field’s priorities
- Network with other advocates from NY and across the country
- Have fun!
We invite you to join us and lend your voice to protect and advance mental health and addictions care in this time of tremendous uncertainty.
It is our goal to have at least one representative from EACH of our member agencies attend Hill Day this year and ensure our voices are heard with our elected representatives in Washington. This is a tremendous opportunity for your organization to identify someone within your agency who can carry your message, is passionate about advocacy and bring them forward to participate in this critical event.
Just click on the link below to get started and register today. As a State Captain, the NYS Council will help with organization and preparation leading up to the event, and will share regular updates with attendees.
Let’s bring our voices together and fight to ensure that every person who needs care gets it!
