Twenty-one million people in the U.S. currently struggle with substance use disorders. Mental illness touches the lives of one in five Americans, and suicide rates have been steadily rising for the past decade. Your advocacy can make a difference in the lives of the countless individuals who need support – use your voice this year with hundreds of your fellow advocates at Hill Day 2020  – June 23-24 in Washington, D.C.

Last year, the voices of 700 advocates were heard loud and clear in more than 300 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 medication-assisted treatment and a stronger workforce can make a difference in their districts.

Help us keep up this momentum and join hundreds of advocates at Hill Day 2020 to speak up for those living with mental illnesses and addictions. On June 23-24, we’ll meet at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C., and take our message to Capitol Hill with one voice.
