Vote Like Your Health Depends on It

Vote Like Your Health Depends on It
Dear James M,
Election Day is only one week away! For far too long, people with mental health conditions and their families haven’t had a voice in the electoral process. We’ve worked to change.
Mental Health America has been educating the candidates about issues that directly affect the mental health community, offering solutions to our nation’s challenges and empowering our communities to make informed decisions.
Now we need YOU to go out and VOTE on November 4! Become an informed voter and learn about the candidates’ positions and plans for health care reform. You can find out where to vote by going to 2008 Voter Info or calling your local or state election office.
The results of the election will be critical to mental health. The next President will decide whether we make mental health a priority and whether it is part of any health reform proposal. The members of Congress that you elect will determine funding for research, community mental health programs, and prevention efforts. 
Your vote is your voice. November 4 is your time to speak up for mental health in the voting booth!
Get Out the Vote – Send an
E-card!
“I forgot.”  “I got home late.”  “I overslept.” These are just a few of the reasons millions of Americans will give when asked why didn’t vote on November 4.
It may be a surprise to you, but some of your friends may not get around to voting. Don’t let them have regrets on November 5.
You can encourage them to vote by sending one of our GOTV e-cards. Remind your friends, family and colleagues that voting is their right. And tell them that every vote counts.
Vote Like Your Health Depends on It … Because It Does
Mental Health America is member of the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease (PFCD), a broad coalition committed to raising awareness of the number one cause of death, disability and rising health care costs in the U.S. Mental health conditions are among the most chronic and disabling of all medical conditions.
PFCD has created a campaign video message featuring Katey Sagal, Lauren Bacall, Mary-Louise Parker, and Phylicia Rashad that encourages voters to consider health care issues, particularly the importance of working to prevent chronic disease, when voting for a presidential candidate on November 4.
