Every year, mental illness and addiction disorders take a tremendous toll on our families and our communities. About one in five Americans experience a mental health or substance use condition, according to data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. While many people know how to provide first aid in a health emergency, few know what to do for someone experiencing a mental health crisis.
Please help build support in Congress for passing the Mental Health First Aid Act by asking your Senators and Representative to be cosponsors (or thanking them if they've already signed on)! The more cosponsors a bill has, the greater its likelihood of being enacted into law.
