Get Bill Passed For Mental Health Pariety


Mission Get a Bill Passed to Provide Mental Health Pariety Description http://www.wellstone.org/network/issue_page.aspx?catID=2796"For years, Paul Wellstone championed legislation that would end discrimination against people suffering from mental illness.  After his death, a bipartisan group of Senators and Representatives named the legislation, which would treat mental illness the same as physical illness, after Wellstone.  Since then, despite overwhelming bipartisan support, this common sense bill has languished in Congress.  This year, the bill has been reintroduced in the House by Representatives Jim Ramstad (R-MN) and Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) as the Paul Wellstone Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act. With new leadership in Congress, now is the time to honor Wellstone's legacy and finally pass this bill."

Please call your representatives in Congress immediately and the president along with your local media to help get this bill passed.
