Mental Health Coalition Of New York Launches Efforts To Procure Federal Funding At Home

NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In the wake of national heartbreak stemming from the untimely loss of countless American residents, focus has turned to those responsible for the gun violence which has tragically defined the fate of hundreds of families. The perpetrators of tremendous acts of gun violence such as the mass murder of dozens at Sandy Hook elementary school have placed a spotlight on the necessity for identification and treatment of people with mental disabilities.

Home to one of the most densely populated metropolitan areas in the United States, New York harbors the resources, professionals, and patients required of a location to receive federal funding for mental health services.

As a result, the Mental Health Coalition of New York has organized to assist in providing solutions for the federal government. Partnering with Gotham Government Relations & Communications, the association will dedicate itself to directing federal dollars to local mental health institutions, research centers, and providers. The Mental Health Coalition will not only act as the key advocacy group for these organizations, but will be responsible for securing proper funding for entities throughout the state of New York.

" New York is the place for change to happen," says Brad Gerstman, Co Founding Partner of Gotham. "We must work together as a state united to protect the safety of our families and communities here in New York."

Teaming up alongside some of the brightest names in both the mental health community and government, the coalition plans to partner with elected officials on the local, city, state, and even national levels to secure federal funding for the state of New York. By engaging in an awareness campaign that incorporates various strategies ranging from communications and lobbying to a grassroots movement, proponents of the cause believe they will instigate great change for the mental health industry.

Every elected member, association, and synergistic partner involved in the coalition's efforts recognizes the absolute necessity for potential funding here in New York. In joining forces they hope to create a united front that spans the realm of political affiliation and further demonstrates the need for federal dollars.
