Mental Health Matters Day

Join MHANYS for Mental Health Matters Day on March 11, 2020
in the Convention Center at the Empire State Plaza!

Mental Health Matters Day is a day-long legislative advocacy event sponsored by the Mental Health Association in New York State, Inc. and held each March at New York State’s capital in Albany. Attendees travel to Albany from across the state to be briefed on critical legislative initiatives impacting mental health policies and to meet with legislators. Everyone interested in helping to advocate for these changes is welcome to attend this free event and participate by sharing why mental health matters to them personally and to the people in their lives.

The policy agenda for the day focuses on MHANYS’ most pressing legislative initiatives including the association’s response to the Governor’s proposed Executive Budget. You are invited to join us for this educational and inspirational day of advocacy where your voice, joined by hundreds of others, can be heard by New York’s elected officials.

Below are some of the issues MHANYS will be focusing on this Mental Health Matters Day:
