Your voice matters. Join us to hold insurers accountable and help people get the support they need.

Every day, insurance companies discriminate against people with mental health conditions by denying access to necessary support. This means people are often forced to pay out of pocket, travel long distances, end up in medical debt, or go without care. A new rule proposed by the Biden Administration aims to prevent insurers from treating mental health differently than physical health, which is called parity. Without it, countless Americans will continue to pay the price.

This issue is urgent. The deadline for written public comments is Oct. 2, 2023.

In our Youth Town Hall on Mental Health Parity, you will:

  • Learn about the problem, solutions, and process for change from leading experts and youth advocates.
  • Craft your story and communicate what matters to you.
  • Learn how to submit government comments and make your voice heard.
  • Get a certificate to demonstrate your leadership in mental health policy.

Tuesday, Sept. 26, from 7-8:30 p.m. ET
