Stop the "Murphy" Bill! HR 2646- "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act" of 2015.

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

On June 4th, 2015, Representative Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania re-introduced the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act, also known as H.R. 2646. The Consumer Council System of Maine and our peers around the country oppose this bill because we want to promote mental health recovery, not kill it, which this bill would do.
There are currently 195 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

The bill continues to promote institutional and coercive approaches to inpatient and outpatient treatment instead of investment in effective community-based mental health services.
