MH Update 12/06/2021 – Another Call in Day Tomorrow: Urge the Governor to Support a 5.4% COLA and $500 million in the budget for Mental Health and Addictions Disorders

Last week, a tremendous number of people call in to voice support for including the 5.4% COLA and $500 million for mental health and addictions
disorders in the budget. Please call again tomorrow and urge Governor Hochul to support this funding.

There is a mental health and addictions crisis in New York. Governor Hochul has been empathetic to our needs but we need to raise our voice and
urge her to support a 5.4% COLA in the budget as well as $500 million in additional funding for our workforce, service and support

Please take a few minutes out of your day today to let the Governor know how important this funding is to our community
