The Hill Present’s Fixing America’s Mental Healthcare System

YOU’RE INVITED  |  2.26.15  |  #FixingMentalHealth


s state and federal budgets get tighter,

spending on mental illness has dramatically fallen, contributing to significant gaps in America’s mental health safety net. Cash-strapped Medicaid programs bear a large part of the burden of caring for those with mental illness and these programs’ budget troubles are only expected to grow.


On Thursday, February 26,

join The Hill for a timely and thought-provoking conversation on the

economic and human consequences

of cost-cutting policies that limit access to mental healthcare treatment.
