We can't go back.

We can't eliminate progress.

The budget recently passed by Georgia's legislature is not preparing for the future. It is looking to the past, where people living with mental health and substance use concerns were pushed out onto the street, into jails, and into institutions, deprived of support, of treatment, of liberty, of dignity, and hope.

Our legislators will soon be returning to our communities throughout the state, before returning to Atlanta to pass another budget after the first of the year.

GMHCN is asking for volunteers thorughout Georgia to help educate legislators about the value of peer support as part of Georgia's recovery-oriented system of care. Sharing our stories with legislators is one way for us to have enormous impact.
