Last week, the North Carolina Healthcare Association (NCHA), along with 11 statewide organizations including NAMI NC, sent a letter to Governor Roy Cooper, Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger and Speaker of the House Tim Moore stating that behavioral health in North Carolina has reached a state of emergency. Now is the time for the Executive branch and legislative leaders to come together with the public and

private sectors to tackle this emergency head-on. The group called on the leaders to bring bipartisan leadership

and dedicate the needed resources to move from band-aid approaches to true system reform.
