Explore the state of mental heath near you

There are a lot of problems that need to be addressed, but for us, three urgent priorities rise to the top:

*Eliminate the gap between the number of people who need help and the people who get help.
* Ensure every school has services to provide for the health and well-being of all students
* Stop criminalizing mental illness and expand crisis response.

Mental health care map of the United States

We need to transform crisis response in America and we need to start now. We need the bipartisan Behavioral Health Crisis Services Expansion Act. Congress designated ‘988’ as a three-digit number for suicide prevention and mental health crisis hotline, available nationwide July 2022. But people need more than a number when they are in crisis—they need the right response in the right place, every time. The bipartisan Behavioral Health Crisis Services Expansion Act (S. 1902 / HR 5611) will change the way we help people when they need it most. This is a bipartisan bill, initially introduced by Sen. John Cornyn, R-TX and Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-NV, which would change the way mental health crises are handled in America.
