Take Action on HR.3032 and S.1879

#SeniorsNeedMHCounselors Campaign


If passed by the U.S. Congress, the Seniors Mental Health Access Improvement Act (S. 1879/HR 3032) would include licensed mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists as eligible recipients of Medicare funding.


On Wednesday, November 15, 2017, the entire mental health counselor community is uniting through social media outreach, combined with calls, to U.S. Senate and House offices, to build support for and pass S. 1879/HR 3032 into law. We need your help to pressure your Representatives to support the Seniors Mental Health Access Improvement Act!


• Calls to select Senators and Representatives

• Facebook posts, tagging targeted Members of Congress and using #SeniorsNeedMHCounselors

• Twitter posts, tagging targeted Members of Congress and using #SeniorsNeedMHCounselors
