A Letter from the President
A great deal has changed since the last legislative Session. Indiana's Governor is now the Vice President of the United States of America. Indiana's Lieutenant Governor is now the Governor of the state and Indiana's architect of HIP 2.0 is the CMS Director. There are other changes too within the Executive Branch--and the Legislative Branch as well, as long-time Senate Health Committee Chair Pat Miller has retired.
What has not changed is the opioid epidemic that has ravaged our state and the tremendous need for mental health and addiction treatment for Hoosiers. To that point, MHAI's commitment to mental health and addiction advocacy has not changed and the MHAI Board has approved the Policy Positions included here. MHAI staff will work daily to advocate for legislative change, but we will need your help.
Please call, write, email your legislators and ask them to support MHAI bills. We will keep you posted as to their progress and when you can best provide your support.
Thank you for your commitment and you support for mental health and addiction advocacy!
