Thank you all who helped to make our “Mayday Mayday” Mental Health Advocacy Day a success!

Advocacy doesn’t start and stop with one event.  We are building a movement of mental health advocates and YOUR VOICE still MATTERS!  Stay engaged and involved.  Our work isn’t done until mental health services and supporting persons with mental illness become a #1 priority among our state legislators and Governor’s cabinet.

A special Thank You to our speakers:

Representative Verla Insko (D-District 56)
