PLEDGE – WE VOTE

If we want transformational change that improves our mental health and addiction care systems, we need to stand united and take action!

 

Millions of Americans live with mental illness and addiction. Deaths from suicide and overdose are at an all-time high. Breaking down barriers to prevention strategies, treatment, and recovery supports has never been more important. But somehow, these issues still haven’t received the attention they deserve in the presidential election cycle.

If we want transformational change that improves our mental health and addiction care systems, we need elected officials to take these issues seriously. That’s why Mental Health for US is calling on you to take action and help your community register to vote.

Exercise your constitutional rights and pledge to help five friends register to vote before the November elections!

Amplify your efforts — tell your friends to text WEVOTE to 444-999 so they can take the pledge, too!
