Shaaray Tefila and Metro IAF, our organizing network, have received had almost 100 people respond to our survey about conditions in ER’s for people with serious mental illness. We want to see if we can get at least 50 more responses so we’re asking you to send this to anyone you know who may have had an experience in an ER relating to mental health. A recent study just showed that wait times for people with mental health issues are longer than most others seeking help—and that these patients are more likely to suffer significant worsening of their condition the longer they wait. So please help us gather data to push for changes in the way hospitals deal with this often overlooked population.
