Mental Health Matters Day

Date: March 8th, 2023

Time: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Location: Empire State Plaza, Albany NY

Mental Health Matters Day is a MHANYS tradition for nearly three decades.

Throughout New York State, advocates visit Albany to learn about mental health policy and engage legislators. Due to COVID, this event was online for the past three years. Now, we are excited to return to our traditional live event.* 

As we await legislative developments in 2023, we can anticipate several issues to be the focus;

  • Mental health workforce funding
  • Higher education and school mental health
  • Supportive housing
  • Mental health needs of veterans

Visit our Legislative Action Community (LAC) to stay in touch with these developments and find resources to prepare for this event.
