Dear [Decision Maker],
Our country is facing the most drastic public health emergency in modern history and I am writing to request that Congress act now to include urgently needed funding for mental health and substance use needs in the fourth Emergency Relief Package.
Too often in our nation's history we have ignored mental health and addiction care, leading to over 100,000 deaths annually from alcohol, drugs, and suicide. COVID-19 threatens to increase the crisis to unprecedented levels.

Please vote to provide relief to behavioral health organizations that are meeting people where they are during unprecedented times. Thank you for supporting this requested funding in the fourth Emergency Relief Package, and I hope you and your family stay well.
