It is important to reach out to your elected officials on a consistent basis. We must make sure they are paying close attention to issues that affect children and youth living with mental health challenges, and their families.
Join us for a free webinar on Tuesday, February 10th from 1-2pm ET as we share tips on Educating Policy Makers.
What's advocacy, what's lobbying and what's plain old educating policy makers? This webinar will explain the difference between advocacy and lobbying and provide tips on creating a strategy to educate state and local policy makers about children's mental health. We all have a role to play when it comes to educating our policy makers.
