NASW Provides Input to Inform Forthcoming Mental Health Packages in the U.S. House and Senate
Both the U.S. House and Senate are developing comprehensive mental health legislation, partly because of COVID-19’s resulting spotlight on mental health. NASW has long worked to educate policymakers about the importance of mental health care for individuals, families, and communities. Recently,
- NASW submitted comments to Sens. Bennet (D-CO) and Cornyn (R-TX) in response to their call for comments to Reimagine America’s Mental and Behavioral Health Care Systems.
- NASW submitted comments to the Senate Finance Committee in response to their solicitation led by Sens. Wyden (D-OR) and Crapo (R-ID) for policy proposals to address unmet mental health needs.
- NASW submitted comments to Sens. Murphy (D-CT) and Cassidy (R-LA) in response to their request for input on federal mental health and substance use disorder programs.
