During the legislative session Help & Hope for YOUth may send out periodic alerts about proposed legislation that affects young people’s health and education. If you are already registered to speak, you’ll be able to submit comments to the committee hearing a particular bill. Learn how to register to speak and find bills being considered by the state legislature by watching a 6 minute Youtube video. We encourage anyone who wants to have a voice at the state level to watch this video and register.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) advocates nationally for a variety of issues related to mental illness, including protecting people’s access to treatment and services, attaining mental health parity and securing better funding for research. Sign up to receive legislative alerts and join NAMI members throughout the country in promoting policy to help those with mental illness.
The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) has an Office of Individual and Family Affairs that works with family members and the community to make sure their voices are heard at the state level. OIFA offers many resources for you to be your own advocate, and information on how to file a formal complaint. You can also provide feedback on your experience in the AHCCCS system--the biggest challenge you and/or someone you know faces when accessing services.
