If you don’t speak up, how can you be heard? Our voices are louder – and more powerful – together. But only if we use them. Use your voice this year with hundreds of your fellow advocates at Hill Day 2019 – September 17-18 in Washington, D.C.

Last year, the voices of 600 advocates were heard loud and clear in more than 250 meetings on Capitol Hill. Legislators on both sides of the aisle met with the people they serve to learn about the needs in their communities. They heard first-hand stories of how increased funding for mental health and addiction programs, expanded access to health information technology for behavioral health providers and a stronger addiction treatment workforce can make a difference in their districts.

Join hundreds of advocates at Hill Day 2019 and speak up for those living with mental illnesses and addictions. On September 17-18, we’ll meet at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C., and take our message to Capitol Hill with one voice.

The National Council is proud to partner with the following organizations to host behavioral health’s biggest advocacy event of the year: Addiction Policy Forum, American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, American Counseling Association, Anxiety and Depression Association of America, Association of Behavioral Health and Wellness, Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, Faces & Voices of Recovery, Family Focused Treatment Association, FREDLA, International Bipolar Foundation, International OCD Foundation, The Kennedy Forum, Legal Action Center, Mental Health America, National Alliance on Mental Illness, National Board for Certified Counselors, National Association of Social Workers, Network for Social Work Management, Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association and Shatterproof.
