For more information, contact Elleni Almandrez
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) is encouraged by the agreement around gun violence prevention and investments in youth mental health that was announced by a bipartisan group of 20 senators, led by Sens. Murphy, D-Conn., and Cornyn, R-Texas.
CHA supports the efforts to reach a compromise to pass meaningful gun violence prevention legislation and to improve access to school and community-based mental health services for children and families, especially those coping with traumatic experiences. We look forward to reviewing the legislative text, once available, and working with Congress towards the ultimate goal: keeping our children safe. Additionally, we will continue our efforts to work towards transformative legislation to end the youth mental health crisis.
