Here is some draft text to help you customize your message:
Dear Governor Baker,
As you consider the FY20 budget, I ask for your strong support of the following provisions to further the mental health of the people of the Commonwealth:
1) $7.548M for the DMH Rental Subsidy Program (DHCD 7004-9033)
This $1M increase over the FY19 budget will help 80 DMH clients who are homeless, unstably housed, or stuck in inpatient facilities secure housing.
2) $10M for the Behavioral Health Outreach, Access, and Support Trust Fund (1595-4512 DMH)
This fund will help expand access to behavioral health services in the Commonwealth through a public awareness and anti-stigma campaign, and investments in loan repayment programs to strengthen the workforce.
Thank you for your attention to the needs of people with behavioral health conditions, their families, and their communities.
