One of the primary agenda items in this year’s budget for MHANYS is to
support funding for the community mental health housing system through the
Bring It Home campaign. Below is information that describes how to send a
message to the Governor in support of the Bring It Home Campaign.

The “Bring it Home, Better Funding for Better Care”
campaign has been asking Governor Cuomo
since the beginning of October, 2017 to call for increased financial
support of New York’s community-based mental health housing system.

You may or may not have participated in previous “calls to action,” but we
need your help with this one. Through this link, you will be able to send a pre-written
message to Governor Cuomo- urging him to take action on this important
issue through his 2018-2019 Executive Budget proposal. The process is
simple– you click the link, enter
your address, name, and contact information, then click send. You can also
help even more by forwarding the invitation to participate in this email
campaign to everyone you know. Take action now and help us get better
funding for better care.

Bring it Home is a coalition of community-based supportive housing
providers, mental health advocates, faith leaders, and consumers and their
families, urging New York State to adequately fund these community-based
housing programs for individuals with psychiatric disabilities. Full
recovery and community reintegration depends on stable housing
opportunities. Through education and advocacy, Bring it Home is working to
bring better funding for better care to New York. Visit the campaign
