Health Care Committee Plans Program on Mental Health

The Health Care Committee is planning a program with the MA Department of Mental Health entitled "GOOD Mental Health. It starts with a conversation." The program is planned for Wednesday, March 11, 2015 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm at the Unitarian Universalist Society, 121 N. Pleasant St, Amherst. Featured speakers will present personal accounts of recovery and resiliency. Discussions will focus on dispelling myths about mental health issues, removing obstacles to acceptance in our community and better understanding.

Health Care Committee

The primary work of the LWVA Health Care Committee is advocacy and education for a Massachusetts single payer plan, i.e. Medicare for All Massachusetts. Medicare for All would be a single insurance plan covering everyone in the Commonwealth  with quality health care benefits. Providers would be paid in a timely manner and would not have to deal with hundreds of competing private insurance companies.
