Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis

>>> H.R.  2646 <<<


One of NFRW's legislative priorities is HR 2646, Representative Tim Murphy's Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act. The legislation has been ordered reported out of subcommittee and is awaiting full committee action.


Our immediate goal is to have key members of the Energy and Commerce Committee co-sponsor the bill.  If you are in Virginia, Ohio, Washington or Texas, please call the following Congressmen (if you live in their district, even better; make sure you make that known to the person who answers the phone). Ask them to 1) co-sponsor HR 2646; and 2) vote for the bill when it is considered in the Energy and Commerce Committee:

  • Representative Morgan Griffith (VA09) - (202) 225-3861
  • Representative Robert (Bob) Latta (OH05) - (202) 225-6405
  • Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA05) - (202) 225-2006
  • Representative Bill Flores (TX17) - (202) 225-6105
  • Representative Michael Burgess (TX26) - (202) 225-7772

In addition, if your Congressman's name is on the list below of Democrat members of the Energy and Commerce Committtee, please call them and ask them to co-sponsor (you can call the House Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to their office):
