Murphy Bill Webinar
The video is available here.
Description: In 2013, Representative Tim Murphy introduced HR 3717, which would have mandated states’ use of involuntary outpatient commitment, defunded protection and advocacy programs, and reduced the funding and authority of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Following pushback from advocacy groups nationwide, Rep. Murphy amended his bill and reintroduced it in 2015 as HR 2646. But how much has really changed? To clear up much of the confusion about the differences between HR 3717 and HR 2646 and to address next steps for advocacy, the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, the National Disability Rights Network, and The Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania hosted a webinar on August 11, 2015. This webinar also provided an overview of the Mental Health Reform Act (S. 1945), which was recently proposed by Senators Chris Murphy and Bill Cassidy.
The webinar featured presentations from national leaders in the disability rights field:
