With nearly one in five Americans living with mental illness and one in 12 living with addiction, and deaths from suicide and overdose at an all-time high, prevention and breaking down barriers to quality treatment and care should be a top priority for all policymakers.
Mental Health for US, The National Council for Behavioral Health, and the NH Community Behavioral Health Association are partnering to announce Mental Health for US Unite for Mental Health: New Hampshire Town Hall to be held on December 16, 2019 at The Dana Center at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH.

Mental Health for US today released survey responses from the top presidential candidates concerning our nation’s growing mental health and addiction crises. The survey, which asked 11 unbiased questions addressing suicide and drug overdose, criminal justice reform, equal access to care, and more, aimed to get top candidates on the record about steps they would take to improve mental health and addiction in America.
