Thanks for your interest in participating in the Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network’s efforts to save peer support in Georgia.
For fiscal year 2021, GMHCN received budget cuts of over 24% from the State of Georgia, resulting in layoffs and the closure of the Peer Support, Wellness, and Respite Center of Henry County.
GMHCN was not the only behavioral health nonprofit to lose funding, and the cuts experienced by GMHCN and our allies are being felt in families and communities across the state.
To prevent additional cuts to mental health supports and peer trainings, we need our legislators to understand how important mental health is to us as individuals, to our families, our communities, and Georgia's recovery-oriented system of care.
We hope you will join us this fall as we contact our legislators in advance of the legislative session in January 2021.
