The Virtual Policy Institute Returns for 2022
In 2020, we introduced our first Virtual Policy Institute, a four-hour learning event offering keynote speakers, legislative updates, immersive breakout sessions and more. Across 2020 and 2021's events, more than 3,300+ attendees from all 50 states and 29 partner organizations united online in support of mental health.
Check back here for more details on this year’s program and legislative ask!
Why Does Hill Day at Home Matter?
Time after time, we have demonstrated that when we speak to Congress with one unified voice, we can make a lasting impact in the lives of those living with mental health and substance use challenges.
When we come together to champion the interests of people in the U.S. living with mental health and/or substance use challenges, it’s our chance to speak directly with the officials you voted into office.
During Hill Day at Home, we use our influence to persuade our elected officials to support critically important legislation that will help improve access to comprehensive health care for those who need it most.
