Each year, 500+ behavioral health executives, administrators, board members, consumers, and community stakeholders come to Washington, D.C. for the National Council’s Hill Day. Participants attend a full day of sessions on federal behavioral healthcare policy, followed by visits with their elected officials on Capitol Hill to advocate for better resources for mental health and addictions treatment.

Your voice at Hill Day makes a difference! Your advocacy efforts matter — face-to-face interactions between legislators and constituents are one of the most powerful ways to impact public policy.

Hill Day 2012 attendees helped:

  • Preserve Medicaid against a series of threats during deficit reduction negotiations.
  • Sign on 17 Senate and 29 House cosponsors for legislation to extend federal health IT incentive payments to behavioral health providers and organizations.
  • Win support for bills to expand the behavioral health system’s capacity and promote public education about mental illness and addictions.
