DBSA Tennessee is determined to give voice to the great need of the most vulnerable consumers of our state. Larry Drain, Legislative Liaison for State Affairs, provides you a convient way to sign on to a petition calling on Governor to reverse direction.
I've started the petition "Governor Bill Haslam: Restore funding to the 45 peer support centers in Tennessee" and need your help to get it off the ground.
Will you take 30 seconds to sign it right now? Here's the link:
Here's why it's important:
The 45 peer support centers in Tennessee serve an average of 3500 a day. For literally a few dollars a day they provide a safe, positive, supporting and therapeutic environment to their members. They reduce hospitalization 93% for their members. They provide succes to many people who have never known it. For many people they are the mental health system. The 4.5 million dollars currently budgeted is a bargain financially, socially and emotionally. Please keep the peer centers in Tennessee
