statehouseThank you to everyone who participated in Mental Health Advocacy Day in 2017. Hundreds of advocates, peers, family members, mental health professionals, and providers across Vermont joined together to RAISE AWARENESS among our elected officials and shared our experiences with the Vermont mental health system of care.

You can continue your advocacy efforts by talking to your legislators and informing them about the needs of Vermonters throughout the year.
