Also major focus is placed in educating members of useful resources and services available to regardless of circumstance and educating the public on mental health issues while dispelling myths about mental illness. Lastly members are encouraged to take active roles in government and democratic processes by defining and tracking house and senate bills, endorsing voter registration, and encouraging all to vote and stay politically informed.
