Tell lawmakers to support behavioral health during coronavirus outbreak

HealthWest annually serves nearly 8,000 Muskegon County residents who have severe mental health issues, developmental disabilities, or substance use disorders.

Our staff is working hard to continue providing these necessary services in a safe, efficient manner during this outbreak.

However, we need your help.

From a lack of adequate personal protection equipment to questions about financial support for conducting services virtually or through the phone, we need our lawmakers to understand that behavioral health and substance use providers are a vital part of the coronavirus response.

We are asking our supporters to take a minute and talk to their elected officials about the importance of these services during this outbreak.

Together, we can work to keep everyone in our community safe.
