Mental Health Advocates Rally

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y.--After the 2014-2015 Executive Budget proposal, an estimated 700 mental health advocates from across the state will be rallying for reinvestment in support of the proposals.

The 2014-15 Executive Budget proposals included $200 million to ramp up new community services and supports for New Yorkers with serious behavioral and medical conditions, much of which represents resources that are being redirected from the downsizing of state psychiatric facilities and diminished use of Medicaid hospitals and emergency rooms due to improved system performance.

The Rally will take place at the East Steps of NYS Capital on Tuesday at 1 p.m.
