America's youth are facing a mental health crisis.

That's why @Nemours' Dr. Kara Odom Walker & I are calling on Congress and the Biden-Harris Administration to prioritize the need to invest in our nation's mental health infrastructure. ⤵️

To honor Mental Health Awareness Month this year, I’ve launched an inaugural Mental Health Consortium that will work to solve the mental health crisis our country is facing.

From Rep. LaMalfa, representing California

I'm grateful for my colleagues’ strong bipartisan support in passing the Public Safety Officer Support Act, legislation I introduced to improve mental health benefits for our nation’s first responders.

Thank you Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA-14) for leading this bipartisan effort to expand support and mental health services for law enforcement personnel and public safety officers.

From Rep. Price, representing North Carolina
Quote

Each year, 1 in 5 Americans will experience a mental health condition.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we must fight the stigma surrounding mental health. I encourage everyone to check-in with themselves & others and to seek help if you need it.

From Rep. LaTurner, representing Kansas

I'm grateful for my colleagues’ strong bipartisan support in passing the Public Safety Officer Support Act, legislation I introduced to improve mental health benefits for our nation’s first responders.

Law enforcement officers across this nation put their lives on the line for the well-being of our communities.

Last night, I was proud to vote in favor of this legislation to expand mental health benefits for police officers and first responders.

Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL-6) and I sent a letter to @SecBecerra demanding answers about HHS's plan to bring a "anti-racism" agenda into the doctors' office.

Becerra denied it existed – despite there being proof in print.

Americans deserve answers.

A bigger priority will be given to an “anti-racism” agenda than other factors like catching cancer in time for treatment, managing a patient's medication and making a mental health plan.

Quote

Students' mental health should not be a partisan issue.

After committee Democrats decided to go it alone on this matter, I offered an amendment during yesterday's @EdLaborGOP markup to ensure mental health grant funds are spent wisely and parents are kept in the loop.

From Sen. Carper, representing Delaware

Building safer communities is an all-hands-on-deck effort—& we need to invest in building trust & transparency.
 
Proud to join @JohnCarneyDE, Sen. Christopher A. Coons (D-DE) and Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE) to announce funding to DE law enforcement—including $1.6 million to equip every officer with a body-worn camera.

Quote

This National Police Week, we honor all who serve to protect our communities and remember those who've fallen in the line of duty.

We must also give them the resources to build trust in our communities, from body worn cameras to community mental health support.
