Advancing Mental Health Care

The Senate will vote today on the #MentalHealthABC bill. We will take important steps to respond to systemic problems that are preventing people from being able to get the mental health care they need, when they need it.

We began the day with a State House gathering to detail the components of the bill, Act Addressing Barriers To Care For Mental Health, and to thank those who provide input to making this bipartisan bill more responsive to our residents

Reform of our mental and behavioral health systems have been too long in the making which makes today an extremely momentous point in time for the Massachusetts Senate and for all of us. You can read the bill, and any of the amendments offered here -
