We build relationships with thought leaders and legislators through storytelling to influence public policy at the Federal, State, County, and City level. We advocate for specific legislation to improve mental health treatment.


Keeping our organization informed with developments and opportunities at all levels is a team effort — think about connections you may have at what level you are plugged in.


We also highly value your lived experience and expertise. Be a designated subject matter expert on an area of policy focus. Help us to collect the stories and the data to reinforce the need for the policy changes that we are seeking!


Empower our members by giving them a voice.
