Join Us for Hill Day 2017
On October 2 – 3, join the National Council for Behavioral Health and The Network for Social Work Management for Hill Day 2017 in Washington, D.C.
Hill Day is an opportunity for hundreds of behavioral health providers, consumers, family members, board members, administrators and community stakeholders to advocate for better resources for mental health and addiction treatment across the country.
Registration for Hill Day is free and includes access to policy sessions, workshops and keynote speakers on Monday, October 2. Visits to elected officials on Capitol Hill will take place on Tuesday, October 3.
Past years’ Hill Day participants played a crucial role in securing congressional support for the Excellence in Mental Health Act, funding for Mental Health First Aid and other important SAMHSA-funded programs. This year with the current threats to Medicaid, there has never been a more important time to speak up for preserving access to mental health and addiction care. Add your voice to the movement, register today.
