MH Update – 7/20/21 – Please Sign MHANYS Petition to Support Mental Health and Wellness in New York’s Workplaces

On behalf of MHANYS, we would like to sincerely thank you for the continued support of our “Support Mental Health & Wellness in New York’s Workplaces!”, we wanted to provide everyone with an update on where we stand.

In April of this year, MHANYS released a petition calling on the New York State Legislature to support a group of proposals surrounding workplace wellness initiatives and mental health literacy in the workplace. Since then, almost 400 community members, families, leaders, and advocates have signed this petition.

As we meet with Legislators and stakeholders, we will be using your collective support to show that these proposals are vital for all of New York’s workforce and our communities; we can not do this without you!

If you haven’t already signed the pledge, please go to the MHANYS petition to learn more about these proposals, sign on as a supporter, and share amongst your friends, families, and networks!

We will continue to provide updates in the coming weeks on these advocacy efforts, engagement with Legislators and stakeholders, and action steps moving forward!
