Here's all you have to do to #JoinUs

1. Call your Senator
2. In about 1 minute, tell your Senator you are calling about the importance of mental health services to your recovery, and what your life would be like without access to care.
3. Leave your name, where you live, and your zip code.
4. Thank them for their time

If you really want to make the most impact, make a short 1 minute video about how the ACA has helped you. All you need to do:

1. Use your computer or camera to make a short 1 minute video to your representative saying how or why the Affordable Care Act has made a difference in your life, and how the removal of those services will impact you.
2. You must include your full name, zip code, and a thank you for taking the time to view your video.
3. Email your video to info@mentalhealthsf.org and we'll make sure it gets to DC!

OR write up your story about how the ACA has helped you.
