Press Conference: Mental Health and Medicaid Expansion

Posted:  -  By: Voices for VA's Kids

Are you UNINSURED and unable to access mental health services as a result of being uninsured? Would having insurance coverage help you or a family member to access medication, therapy appointments, and other behavioral health services needed?

In coordination with NAMI VA, VOCAL, MHAV and Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness, the Campaign for Children’s Mental Health will participate in a press conference regarding Medicaid expansion and mental health.

We are currently looking for one or two people  to share their stories about being uninsured and unable to obtain mental health care coverage at a press conference this week.  Stories must be specifically  about being uninsured and the resulting difficulty this has caused you or a loved one in in obtaining the mental health services.

To share your story, please email ashley@vakids.org as soon as possible.

More information about the event will be posted as the details of the event are determined.
