Hill Day at a Glance

Registration is now open for Hill Day 2019 – behavioral health’s largest advocacy event of the year.

Held in partnership with 20+ national mental health and addictions organizations, Hill Day gathers hundreds of behavioral health providers, C-suite level executives, board members, consumers and community stakeholders in Washington, D.C. Hill Day begins with sessions and workshops on federal behavioral health policy. The following day, attendees take their message to Capitol Hill to advocate for better resources for mental health and addictions treatment in their communities. We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C., this September. Register today!
