Mental Health HOPE Symposium

Leading mental health orgs host a symposium on November 16, 2011 in Washington to examine the challenges facing the mental health community

We are in a Crisis

As a result of the continued economic downturn, states and the federal government have cut billions of dollars in mental health care funding over the past several years.

The outcome is a loss of access to mental health treatment and services for countless Americans, as well as increased costs to local governments, social service organizations, schools, and the justice system. And far too often, cuts also mean a loss of hope for the individuals and families battling mental illness.

Concurrently, the mental health community is facing a period of uncertainty.

The passage of the Affordable Care Act has required federal and state governments to issue regulations over the next few years that will impact both providers and recipients of mental health care for decades.

 

Mental Health Community Rallies Together

With the threat of further cuts and expectation of significant regulatory changes, leading organizations in the mental health community have united to increase awareness of the need to protect patient access to quality care and treatment.

As part of their collaboration, The Mental Health Hope Symposium: Lost Dollars, Lost People, Lost HOPE was formed to bring together and educate congressional leaders and their staff, mental health leaders and other related professionals on the state of mental health care.
