MENTAL HEALTH INFORMATION SESSION FOR LEGISLATORS and STAFF

On December 10, 2014, Keep the Promise (KTP) Coalition, Connecticut’s largest group of key stakeholders advocating for smart policy reforms and systems change to benefit people impacted by mental health conditions, the Office of the Child Advocate (OCA), and the Office of the Healthcare Advocate (OHA) held a two-hour information session on mental health issues for newly elected and re-elected legislators and their staff.

This information session presented legislators with the unique opportunity to gain valuable up-to-date knowledge on important mental health issues facing the state as they prepare for the upcoming 2015 legislative session. All current Connecticut legislators and their staff, and media were invited to attend the session.

Central to the event was the first-time release of KTP’s Mental Health Resource Binder, comprised of 35 fact sheets on important mental health issues, including Mental Health Parity, Early Identification and Intervention, Supportive Housing, Debunking Myths Concerning Mental Health Conditions and Violence, and Well-Being and Mental Health.

The information session was held on December 10, 2014, 1-3pm at the Legislative Office Building, Room 2E, in Hartford, CT.
