Public Policy Zap: Training Session
October 13 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Join fellow advocates for a Public Policy Phone Zap! We will begin with a training session on how to participate in a “phone zap” to raise awareness among elected decision-makers about the realities of OCD treatment for people living with the disorder, their loved ones, and clinicians.
From expansion of insurance coverage, to support for the mental health workforce, there are countless ways that policy advocacy can improve the lives of those in our community – and those who have yet to access appropriate treatment. Working together, we can urge governments to ensure that treatment for OCD and related disorders is affordable, widely available, and effective.
After the training session, we will then make our calls together. The Phone Zap will be held via Zoom on October 13, 2023 from 12-1pm ET and you will learn best practices for contacting your local elected officials and who to call.
Make sure to fill out this RSVP form to have the Zoom link emailed to you on the morning of the training to gain access!
