Transform Mental Health in Illinois!

This petition had 1,236 supporters

An estimated 1 in 5 Illinoisans are living with mental illness. Mental illnesses are treatable medical conditions.

Illinois must build a mental health sector that meets treatment needs and helps to avoid the spiral into preventable disability, numerous costly hospitalizations, isolation, poverty, homelessness and criminal justice involvement. It is time we treat mental illnesses the way we do all other medical conditions – by providing the treatment required for stability and recovery.

The Road Map to Mental Health Reform lays out a clear path for what Illinois must do to create a strong mental health sector. We urge Governor Rauner and members of the Illinois General Assembly to invest in reforms that enable Illinoisans to get the right treatment services when they need them.

Join advocates, mental health providers, and people with lived experience from around the state in this call to action in support of comprehensive mental health reform!
