The Minnesota Psychological Association will be joining in on the Mental Health Day on the Hill scheduled for March 16, 2017. We have had great experiences with Mental Health Day and participants have enjoyed getting involved in the legislative process. The key to legislative success is the development of working relationships with our legislators. We need all psychologists to be engaged with their legislators to ensure that our profession is supported and so that the health care system is responsive to the needs of those we serve.
Mental Health Day will include meeting at 8:15 a.m. at the Capitol Building, Room 316, in St. Paul. We will review some general information about the legislative process, and specifics of legislation MPA is working on this year. This review of advocacy strategy and issues will be the part of the day eligible for CE credit. We will then go to the Capitol for pre-scheduled meetings with attendees’ legislators. A rally will be held in the Capitol rotunda where a variety of mental health providers and consumers will gather at noon to support mental health legislation. At the end of the day, we will touch base with participants to debrief about their experiences.
