Vermont Mental Health Advocacy Day – January 31

Mental Health Advocacy Day

Every year, Vermonters join together to raise their voice in support of Mental Health Advocacy Day at the Statehouse. Advocates will meet virtually on Monday, January 31 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm to call on Vermont leaders and legislators to advocate for mental health.

The day will include a welcome address from state leaders and a keynote presentation from Senate President Pro Tempore Becca Balint. The afternoon will be an opportunity for the community to share their mental health experiences and stories to influence legislators about the importance of mental health care. Advocacy trainings will be scheduled prior to the event to help you develop and build your advocacy skills to speak with legislators and to learn more about Vermont’s legislative process. Additionally, testimony will be scheduled at the discretion of committee chairs during the week of February 1-4.
