We need a new approach to providing #mentalhealth and addiction care that is mindful of history and the black experience. That will require a national commitment to build a better mental #healthcare system, rooted in empowering communities
Today I asked Granite Staters to raise their hands if they or someone they know have been touched by our nation's mental health care and addiction crisis. I saw a room full of hands. We can no longer wait to act—that's why I just released a plan to meet this urgent crisis.
We're in the midst of a devastating opioid epidemic that is harming communities across the country. In a few moments, I'll be speaking live from Manchester, NH to unveil my new plan to tackle the crisis head on and reduce deaths of despair by 1 million.
Thank you @PeteButtigieg for giving me a dose of hope today. It’s more than an #opioid crisis, it’s an #addiction crisis. Community peer supports saved my life. Housing & access to care saved my life. Finally, I feel like someone is listening.
America’s addiction and mental health care crisis has been building for decades—due to decades of neglect by political leaders in Washington. Today, I’m proposing a new approach that tackles this crisis with the urgency and care it deserves.
Congrats to @Devin_Reaves. Celebrating 12 YEARS TODAY in recovery. “Thanks to God, my family, hard work and access to resources- today we celebrate 12 years in Recovery from a Substance Use Disorder! Yeah it’s a we thing!”
