Congressman Kennedy Introduces Mental Health & SUD Proposals

Congressman Joe Kennedy III (D-MA) recently introduced a resolution calling on Congress to invest and bring parity to mental health and substance use disorder treatment systems. The Congressman also introduced the Behavioral Health Coordination and Communication Act (H.R.7723) to establish a new Interagency Coordinator to oversee all federal behavioral health efforts and mandate reports and proposals to identify systemic gaps.

NAADAC provided the Congressman with recommendations to help strengthen the focus on substance use disorders. NAADAC is proud to endorse these proposals that help address gaps in the mental health and substance use disorder treatment system.
