Support $38.5 Billion for Behavioral Health Providers in Fighting COVID-19

Congress continues to deliberate continued aid towards the COVID-19 pandemic, talks have been underway regarding a stimulus 4 aid package. Through the National Council and their members, we are requesting an emergency appropriation of $38.5 billion for providers of mental health and addiction treatment services to be included in the next stimulus package considered by Congress. This is one of the largest and most important appropriations requests of our time.

As COVID-19 has spread fear and anxiety across our nation, our behavioral health providers need PPE, equipment, and most importantly financial resources to keep our doors open and the lights on. We need this emergency funding to continue doing the lifesaving work we and our partner providers do in our community every day, serving individuals with mental illness and addiction.

Will you take two minutes today to urge your Member of Congress to NOT leave mental health and addictions behind?
