Support mental health and social services in Illinois

Right now, providers of mental health services in Illinois (as well as providers of services for child welfare, ex-offenders, domestic violence, sexual assault, and vocational training) are suffering dire challenges due to the financial problems of state government. Despite a recent income tax increase, these agencies are not being paid and face even more cuts in the near future. Many agencies are being forced to limit new clients, amd may have to shut down altogether. Please ask your state legislators to consider how these important services may be protected and preserved, so that our most vulnerable citizens will not have to be deprived of the services that help them improve their quality of life.
