NAMI Texas Action Alert Update: HB 868

We have updated our strategy on HB 868. This bill currently sits in the House Committee on Local & Consent Calendars and we believe it would be best to email a key staffer for the chair of that committee (Rep. Senfronia Thompson). The staffer’s name is Milda Mora and her email address is milda.mora@house.state.tx.us. In your email, you will want to request that Ms. Mora ask Rep. Thompson to schedule a hearing in the house. Be sure to give your full name, address, telephone number and e-mail address, as that adds legitimacy to your contact. Please also include:

A basic description of the bill: “HB 868 would make family-friendly communications with providers much more possible and would improve the ability for various treatment sources to communicate to provide better continuity of care.”

And an expression of our appreciation: “Thank you for making a difference in the lives of Texans with mental illness!”
