From 2000-2006 the Mental Health Liaison Group (MHLG) wrote briefing papers for candidates as a guide during their campaign. These briefing papers were to inform candidates about different mental health issues and gain support for what MHLG advocates for. Some of these issues included transforming service delivery, access to treatment, supporting our veterans and active military members, recognizing effects of trauma on mental health and illness, Medicare/Medicaid, and other very important issues that prioritize mental health in policy and practice. The Mental Health Liaison Group advocates to improve the lives of individuals with mental illnesses by informing potential political leaders about the key issues in the behavioral health field.
