Several years ago, MHANYS advocated for creating a mental health license plate. A bill was then signed into law. Recently, in legislation introduced by Assembly member Gunther, language was added that the license plate be highlighted on the OMH Web Page. Listed below is a copy of the webpage.
Also this is a reminder that any funds recouped by the State for the license plate goes to a fund created by the Office of Mental Health to be utilized for anti-stigma work in the community.
Hope you all take the time to support mental health by getting a license plate that speaks out about public awareness.
Have a peaceful holiday.
