On Wednesday, October 7 the Campaign for Real Change in Mental Health Policy is encouraging everyone to call, write, or use social media to contact their member of Congress and tell them that the Murphy Bill is bad for America.
Everything needed to be a successful advocate on our Day of Action can be found here. Make your voice heard!
Twitter Campaign: Tell The National Journal “Nothing About Us, Without Us!”
Also on Wednesday, October 7, from 8:30 – 10:30 AM Eastern Time, The National Journal and Janssen Pharmaceuticals are sponsoring an event] in Washington, DC on mental health reform with speakers including Rep. Tim Murphy, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), and a variety of others. The sole voice missing from the discussion is that of those who would be most directly affected by the proposed policies – people with psychiatric diagnoses!
The National Journal is encouraging people to use the hashtag #NJMentalHealth during the event. So, you are encouraged to use your twitter account to talk back and let them hear the voices that are missing in person. You can also use the hashtag #RealMHChange throughout the day.
