NAMI California Family/Peer Support Specialist Pilot Webinar
Training Program

The Family/Peer Support Specialist Webinar Training program is devoted to giving peers and family members an opportunity to learn about educational skills such as the Recovery Model, Communication Skills,
Trauma Informed Care, among others.

The U.S. House of Representatives is voting on the American Health Care Act (AHCA) which will mean less mental health coverage, not more. Coverage for mental health care helps people get treatment when they need it. But the AHCA would put millions of Americans with mental illness at risk. Cutting corners in health coverage will drive people with mental illness into costly emergency rooms, hospitals and jails.

The latest version would allow states to choose either Medicaid per capita caps or block grants. The adjustment for inflation would be more generous, but federal funding would still be decimated. No additional states would be able to expand Medicaid and no new enrollees would receive the enhanced expansion federal match. States would be allowed to impose work requirements on certain types of Medicaid enrollees. To learn more, see this Kaiser Family Foundation brief on non-elderly adults with disabilities

Tell your U.S. Representative to protect mental health and vote NO.

Take Action!

Advocacy Network call reminder!

March 23rd from 1-2pm

What does this mean for us?

Find out tomorrow on the NAMI Advocacy Network Call on March 23rd. Andrew Sperling, NAMI's federal lobbyist, will give an update from Congress, explaining how Medicaid would change under the current version of the AHCA. Chuck Duarte, former Medicaid Director for Nevada, will share his insights and recommendation. Darcy Gruttadaro will discuss NAMI's advocacy campaign on the AHCA and the valuable role you
can play.

There will be plenty of time for discussion. This is your chance to ask experts about a bill that could have enormous consequences for people with mental health conditions. Send your questions and comments to Happy Carlock: hcarlock@nami.org.

Presenters:

Chuck Duarte is the Chief Executive Officer of Community Health Alliance (CHA), a non-profit federally-qualified health center in the Reno area serving more than 30,000 Nevadans annually. Mr. Duarte served as the Nevada Medicaid Administrator for 12 years. He is a NAMI insider, having served on the NAMI Nevada Board of Directors.

Andrew Sperling, Director of Legislative Affairs, represents the interests of NAMI's constituency with members of Congress, the White House and the federal government.

Darcy Gruttadaro, Director of Advocacy and Public Policy, leads NAMI's strategic initiatives by developing and implementing effective grassroots' advocacy campaigns and strategies.
