A Look Back at Our Work in 2015

As we wrap up 2015, here is a brief snapshot of the work we’ve done together over the past twelve months.

  • We held the first annual State of the Union in Mental Health and Addiction, to bring our collective policy agenda into focus, and hold our leaders accountable for the change we need.
  • Our issue brief series, “Fixing Behavioral Health Care in America,” focused on the promising policy approaches in mental health and addiction, and was informed by a series of high-level summit meetings with leading voices in our field.
  • In November, we launched The NOW Campaign, a national movement dedicated to making mental health and addiction part of the conversation in the 2016 election.
  • In partnership with the Scattergood Foundation, we launched ParityTrack, the definitive resource for promising practices in advancing the law, and calling leaders to action.

Our progress would not have been possible without a community of people dedicated to creating the behavioral heath system our county needs. Thank you for your support.

Our plans for next year are taking shape, and we are excited to share them with you in the coming weeks.
