Call to Action: Support Mental Health Workforce Funding and Community Support: A Conceptual Budget Agreement Does Not Mean that Everything has been worked out including the COLA Please send a letter today.

Last night the Governor announced a conceptual budget agreement.

There are still issues that have been left unaddressed. Among those are the 8.5% COLA for the human service workforce.   Now more than ever, we need your support for the COLA.  Please continue to write your legislator and highlight what a priority it is to have the COLA for the workforce and for provider agencies. Your voice must be heard

Last night I was on Capitol Tonight with Susan Arbetter, highlighting the significance of the COLA.  The link is attached below.–8-5–cost-of-living-adjustment-needed-for-mental-health-workers
