Be An Advocate!
YOUR VOICE COUNTS – By working together to be a voice for mental health, we can make a real difference!
- Be brief, prepared, clear, honest, accurate, persuasive, timely, persistent and grateful.
- Let the legislator know that you are there to serve as a resource. Be a partner, not an adversary.
- Listen to what your legislator has to say on the issue.
- Be sure to thank the legislator for taking the time to hear your position with a short follow-up.
