National Call-In for Parity
September 10, 2008
With Congress back in session this week and only a short time left, it must pass mental health parity legislation. This is the moment to remind lawmakers that parity legislation is critical, unfinished business.
Never in the almost two-decade fight for parity have we been closer to victory. If Congress fails to bring parity to a vote before adjourning later this month, we must restart the push for parity in 2009. Help us win its passage by joining in the National Call-in for Parity tomorrow, September 10.
