MH Update – 3/24/21 – Help Support Trauma-Informed Legislation

Advocacy Action: Help Support Trauma-Informed Legislation  

The Assembly has proposed requiring trauma-informed practice training for mandated reporters. The bill would also provide for the creation and dissemination of materials explaining Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)/Protective Factors and pointing parents in the direction of community resources. Finally, the legislation would expand the list of services covered by Child Health Plus, including children’s mental health rehab. Please help us urge the Senate to include these provisions in the final budget by following this campaign link.

Once there, Quorom will generate a pre-written letter and email it to appropriate Senate representatives. You will just need to provide your first and last name, your address and your email address. Once entered, the ten letters will come-up and then you just hit “Send Selected Letters.” That’s it. After that you also have the option of sharing it on social media.

Thank you for your support of this important legislation.
