Become a Cosponsor of the COVID-19 Commission Act

April 24, 2020

Presently, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are over 2,732,000 across the world and over 869,000 in the United States. While we do not yet know the full impact COVID-19 will have on the nation, already more Americans have been killed by the virus than

on people’s mental health and wellbeing and has exacerbated and contributed to existing and new behavioral health conditions. Behavioral health providers are at risk of closing their doors during this pandemic. With an already sparse workforce, now is not
