Capitol Day 2015 a Great Success!
Representative Elliott Naishtat greeted over 350 mental health advocates at the Mental Illness Awareness Coalition Capitol Day 2015 event Thursday, February 19 at the Schmidt-Jones Family Life Center. Gyl Switzer of MHAT and Matt Wolff of NAMI briefed the group on healthcare workforce issues. Eric Woomer of the Federation of Texas Psychiatry provided tips on effective legislative visits. After a short rally of support on the south steps of the Capitol, hundreds of advocates entered the Capitol visiting their respective legislators.
