Mental health focus for legislative action | Lifestyle

Your Knox County Mental Health America Director Kathy Evans and I had a very interesting experience this past week as we were national advocates for our congressional representatives discussing support of various pieces of legislation that support mental health programs and services.

During March, many people are focused on service as a practice of Lent, there is no greater service to others than advocacy and this is something that everyone can do with Congress. Kathy and I along with many others across the country spoke to office staff about six specific pieces of legislation that we were seeking support and I personally found this experience very rewarding and informational.
