::ATTENTION:: We have a new petition that we need to introduce before this petition. It is to request that the the Health Policy Committee hold a public hearing. Please sign that petition as well by clicking here.

Michigan House Bill 5550 will prohibit mental health professionals from engaging in efforts to change the sexual orientation and gender identity of a minor. The nation’s leading mental health experts agree the practice of conversion therapy is based on the illegitimate and unscientific claim that being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender is a mental illness that must be cured. The young victims of conversion therapy often develop dangerous behaviors, including depression, lower self-esteem, substance abuse and even suicide. If passed, Michigan would join several other states in having similar statutes prohibiting conversion therapy.

We, the undersigned, urge our elected leaders to act now to pass MI House Bill-5550 to Ban Conversion Therapy.
