MH Update – 5/6/20 – Urge Sen Schumer to Demand that COVID-19 Funds Are Allocated to the States!

Yesterday, MHANYS sent a letter to the Governor urging him to not cut mental health funding given the impact to COVID–19 (IN ORDER TO STAY NEW YORK TOUGH, WE HAVE TO BE MENTAL HEALTH STRONG).

As we said in the letter, the way we can best minimize cuts to mental health and to the entire human services community is by getting the next federal stimulus package to include funding specifically for States. The impact of not having that funding would be devastating to every New Yorker.

The best way to advocate for funding for New York is to reach out directly to the office of Senator Schumer.  Listed below is a call to action.

Please make a call today. (Thanks to NYAPRS for creating this messaging)
