The time is now!
On Wednesday, July 6, the full U.S. House of Representatives will vote on HR2646, the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act.

Call your Congressional Representative on Tues, July 5

Say you are a constituent and ask that your representative:

Also send an email (as soon as possible) to your representative with the same message.
To find your representative go to
Clink on the representative (not senator) to go to their web page.
Clink on contact on the representatives web page to send an email.


The voting is currently scheduled for 2:00pm on Wed, July 6, with discussion and any new proposed amendments before the time.  (I don't know what time that will start.)

It should be available live for view on the computer. Go to:

If you are interested in attending the voting session, you must call your representative's office to ask for a gallery pass, which you can pick up at their office the day of the vote.  I do not think our attendance will have much influence on the vote since we are in the balcony and the legislators are not facing us.  However, feel free to attend if you are interested.

Thanks for all your advocacy that has gotten us this far!!!

Best, Evelyn & Lisa
