This blog was founded 4 years ago, to spotlight the 'system failures' individuals living with serious psychiatric brain diseases experience in the commonwealth and to give their families a voice.
Since December, many of those families as well as NAMI Kentucky, have reached out to their US Congressman asking them to support the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act (H.R. 3717).
Brenda Benson, a Mother and President of NAMI/Murray, KY contacted Congressman Whitfield explaining her story and why she supports H.R 3717.
(Below is Rep. Whitfield’s official letter pledging his support to co-sponsor H.R 3717!
Please join me to thank Congressman Whitfield for his important decision to help families and individuals living with a mental illness in Kentucky.
Contact Congressman Whitfield at (202) 225-3115
