MHA regularly holds advocacy town halls and other forums to increase the public’s and policy maker’s knowledge of needed mental health legislation. This includes an annual legislative breakfast, organized visits to the State Capital, as well as a virtual Town Hall Series designed to encourage citizen engagement in the legislative process related to mental health. These trainings are intended to empower individuals diagnosed with a mental health disorder to initiate regular contact with key elected officials.
Early in the 2024 NC legislative session, MHA will host our Annual Legislative Breakfast to bring together policymakers and stakeholders – to prioritize access to care and an improved mental health system for all in North Carolina. Join us and use your voice to help make systemic change. When you join AIMWEll, our grassroots advocacy network, we’ll send you periodic updates, calls to action and event invitations.
