Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders Toolkit
Women In Government (WIG), 2017
In 2016, Women In Government seated the National Task Force on Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders after hearing from members about the growing epidemic in their states. The group met over the course of the year to collaborate, develop state policy responses and fresh ideas, and create effective partnerships. The task force, which includes state legislators, mental health professionals and advocates, targeted several policy areas that affect mental health and substance use disorders. The toolkit publishes the results of this national task force.
