All Hands on Deck!

The Georgians for a Healthy Future board of directors and our host committee invite you to join us on the evening of June 27th for a reception and fundraiser to celebrate the successes Georgia’s health care advocacy community has had over the past year and to support the work of Georgians for a Healthy Future as we gear up for the challenges ahead: getting Georgia to “yes” on the Medicaid expansion, connecting eligible Georgians to coverage through the new health insurance marketplace opening this fall, and standing up for health care consumers as the public policy decisions that will affect their lives are made. General tickets are $60. To register, click here.

Medicaid expansion could be a game changer for Georgians with mental illness

Georgia ranks 9th in the nation in the number of uninsured adults with a mental illness who could gain coverage through the Medicaid expansion, according to a new report from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). The NAMI report describes the barriers that people with mental illness face in accessing services and the important role that Medicaid plays in connecting people to services so they can be healthy and productive members of their communities. Expanding Medicaid in Georgia is a major opportunity to change the lives of more than 86,000 low-income uninsured adults with mental illness in Georgia–if you haven’t already, please sign the petition in support of expanding Medicaid in Georgia and join us in our campaign to Cover Georgia!  The full NAMI report on Medicaid and mental health is available here.

Please do help, share awareness and spread kindness. Feel free to visit About Leslie Zebel
