Virtual Voices for Mental Health program 2021
ASPIRE is again partnering with IOCDF on Virtual Voices for Mental Health program in which we call on our community to contact their legislators to ask for their support for specific mental health bills.
These are the main issues:
Issue #1: Support Telehealth Access
Issue #2: Grow the Mental Health Workforce
ASPIRE is again partnering with IOCDF on the Virtual Voices for Mental Health program in which we call on our community to contact their legislators to ask for their support for specific mental health bills.
Visit IOCDF’s Action Center! Here you can find the latest information about bills in the US Congress that support the needs of the OCD and related disorders community. Your representatives and senators are considering these changes to public policy, and they need to hear from you about why they are so critical!
Watch the IOCDF Virtual Voices 2020 Rally
Hosted by the International OCD Foundation as part of OCD Awareness Week, Virtual Voices for Mental Health: An Online Day of Action includes an evening of live programming and a day of advocacy activities that you can do from your phone or computer:
- On Monday, October 12th, we will rally together for an evening of live virtual programming that will prepare you to be an effective advocate for key mental health legislation. Programming will begin at 7 pm ET.
- On Tuesday, October 13th, we will invite you to take action by contacting your elected representatives via email and making your voice heard. Our system will give you all the information you need to connect with your representatives, and templates will be provided.
This event is open to people with OCD and related disorders, their families, friends, clinicians, and all other members of the mental health community. We welcome seasoned advocates and first-timers alike!
