[MHANYS Update – 1/14/19 Press Conference Follow Up: Survey Finding from Behavioral Health Workforce and Facebook Live Coverage of the Press Conference

Thanks to our colleagues across the behavioral health spectrum who came together today in support of a 2.9 COLA for the human services workforce in the State Budget. Thanks also to our speakers—Bill Gettman, CEO of Northern Rivers, Phyllis Fisher of Community Access, Tina Lee, Director of Public Relations for NAMI-NYS and Jessica Mitchell from Northern Rivers. All made a compelling case for support of a COLA in the budget as you can tell from the attached video. Also thanks to the thousands of you calling the Governor’s Office in support of the COLA.
