Thank you to everyone who came out for the Maryland Behavioral Health Coalition’s 2020 Keep the Door Open Rally. Hundreds of you flooded Annapolis to demand a restoration of nearly $25 million in budget cuts to community mental health and substance use treatment, the appropriate enforcement of federal and state parity laws, and the rest of the Coalition’s 2020 Legislative Agenda.
Thank you to all of the legislators who stood with us, and to all of the speakers who shared their own personal stories. You took the time to speak up for every Marylander living with behavioral health needs, and they heard you loud and clear! The event was covered by a variety of media outlets and it generated a ton of social media activity.
