Each county town hall meeting will have a panel of state legislators of that county to hear from advocates, community mental health leaders and concerned citizens regarding their concerns to be addressed by mental health reform.

Purpose:

  • To express to policy makers your personal concerns that we properly fund more and better mental health services, and
  • To oppose Lansing efforts to shift Medicaid funding for mental health services to private HMOs (privatization)

Persons wishing to share their stories are encouraged to bring written statements which will be collected and shared with other policy makers following the event. Public comments will be limited to 5 minutes each to enable many people to express their concerns. If you choose not to speak or you can’t attend, you may e-mail your comments to fred.a.cummins@gmail.com

Everybody is welcome!  You can attend any one of the town hall meetings regardless of your county of residence.

Sponsors:

- Alliance for the Mentally Ill of Oakland County

- Mental Health Association in Michigan
