Throughout the year, we’ve asked Congress to stop health reform efforts that would hurt Americans with mental illness.

We have good news: Congress listened.


Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Patty Murray (D-WA) announced a bipartisan agreement to help keep insurance markets sound and more affordable. If this bill passes, it will help protect mental health coverage for Americans with mental illness.

The Alexander-Murray bill will also keep vital patient protections in place, including stopping health plans from:

  • dropping coverage of mental health and substance use.
  • charging higher premiums if an individual has a preexisting condition, like depression or anxiety.
  • charging more simply because a person has a mental health or substance use condition.  


Your continued advocacy matters.

Contact your senators TODAY ​and tell them to support this bipartisan effort and protect mental health coverage for millions of Americans.
