Guinta, Kuster To Host Mental Health Summit

May 11, 2015

 

New Hampshire's two congressional representatives are hosting a mental health summit to discuss establishing a national strategy for the treatment of mental illness and increased investment in research for its prevention and treatment.

The summit is being hosted by Republican Frank Guinta and Democrat Annie Kuster at the UNH School of Law in Concord on Monday.

Among the participants are state Health Commissioner Nick Toumpas, Superior Court Chief Justice Tina Nadeau and Ken Norton of the National Alliance on Mental Illness in New Hampshire.

The representatives will use the feedback they hear to revise and improve a bill they are working on about mental health care.
