Conference Committee working on State’s Budget

As you know, the state’s budget is currently being determined in a conference committee. NAMI Texas is urging the committee to support the Senate’s version of the funding for Mental Health Services. To be fiscally conservative, it is important to pay the upfront costs of keeping people with mental illness in the community and out of the more costly emergency rooms and jails and prisons! Pay now, or pay more later! If you would like to contact members of the conference committee you can find their contact information here:
