NBCC has been working with our partners in the Medicare Mental Health Workforce Coalition to inform lawmakers and the public about H.R. 945/S. 286, the Mental Health Access Improvement Act. As part of this effort, we are hoping some board certified counselors would be willing to get in touch with local newspapers or other media outlets in their area and write op-ed articles to be published and disseminated. These articles carry a lot of weight with legislators because they indicate that their constituents are concerned enough to reach out to media.
If you are interested in writing an op-ed article in your local newspaper or engaging with other media in your area about the Mental Health Access Improvement Act, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work with you to get the word out!
