As you may have heard, sequestration resulted in the cancellation of funding of consumer scholarships to Mental Health America’s 2013 Annual Conference, Why Welllness Works: Breakthroughs and Pathways to Whole Health, June 5-8, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland
In the past, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) provided funding for people with mental health and substance use conditions to attend Mental Health America's Annual Conference. Our conferences have educated, informed and empowered those consumer attendees, who learn and disseminate critical information to statewide consumer groups.
We received close to 200 applications and now we're seeking your help. Your generous financial support will help deserving mental health consumers attend this important Conference.
We have set a goal of raising $10,000 by May 14—the last day we can reserve space—to allow the same number of consumers who have attended our Conference in previous years to participate in this year’s meeting.
Please consider supporting this remarkable and deserving group of people by donating to our Consumer Scholarship Fund.
