National Mental Health Crisis

Message from HHS:

In his State of the Union address, the President outlined a unity agenda consisting of policy where there has historically been support from both Republicans and Democrats, and called on Congress to send bills to his desk to deliver progress for the American people. As part of the unity agenda, he announced a strategy to address our national mental health crisis. Addressing this crisis is a priority for the Administration, and a personal commitment of the President. That’s why he has laid out a comprehensive whole-of-government strategy to build system capacity, connect more people to care, and provide support to Americans, especially kids, by fostering healthy environments in real world and online.

To further discuss the Strategy to Address our National Mental Health Crisis, the HHS Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs invites you to join us Wednesday, March 2 at 3:30 PM ET for a Stakeholder Briefing.
