Members of Congress: Oppose "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act" (H.R. 3717)

change.org petition now online!

Helping families in Mental Health Crisis Act doesn't help people with psychiatric disabilities--it hurts them and their families! The bill eliminates legal advocacy on behalf of people with psychiatric disabilities. --The bill cuts 85% of funding for protection and advocacy programs. People with psychiatric disabilities WILL be unable to enforce legal protections from discrimination in housing, employment, community living, and voting. The bill reduces privacy protections for individuals with psychiatric disabilities. --Under the bill people with psychiatric disabilities won't get the same HIPPA protections every one else is entitled to. The bill would increase needless institutionalization. --The bill would give more money to psychiatric institutions instead of programs that help people live in community.
