Call to Action - November 29, 2016


Congress Hides the House Murphy Bill in the 21st Century Cures Bill, HR 34

NCMHR urges you to call or email your Representatives and Senators immediately and advocate for them to vote no on HR 34,  21st Century Cures Act, and fight for a better one. Section IX of HR 34 combines the Murphy bill, with its violations of civil liberties and medicalization of mental health by dismantling SAMHSA , with a medical research bill.

Please write emails to the following:

The Honorable Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House of Representatives – Dear Mr. Speaker:

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader of the House – Dear Minority Leader Pelosi:

The Honorable Mitchell McConnell, Majority Leader of the Senate – Dear Majority Leader McConnell:

The Honorable Harry Reid, Minority Leader of the Senate – Dear Minority Leader Reid:

Contact information:



Congress is voting tomorrow on this massive bill that combines several large pieces of legislation into the 21st Century Cures Act. Other problems with the bill: gives much more freedom to Big Pharma to give gifts to Doctors and promote unlicensed use of medications; also makes it more difficult for persons with disabilities to get community support.

Please share your experiences with us regarding the outcome of calls made to your representatives via our contact page.
