The big story this month is about the budget cuts for Montana mental health services (especially impacting case management services):
It isn’t just Western Montana Mental Health Center that will be affected; all mental health services will feel the pinch, as an already underfunded system is forced to make do with even less. This is a time for advocacy; please contact your local and state elected representatives and ask them to consider the consequences of these cuts!
NAMI national opposes the proposed Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill:
It’s time to stop another dangerous health reform bill in its tracks. The new Graham-Cassidy bill will make it harder than ever for people to get psychiatric medications, case management, and mental health services—and other people with mental illness will lose their coverage entirely. Tell Congress to vote NO on Graham-Cassidy: http://bit.ly/2h7ZCOA
