The advocacy and activism subcommittee seeks to increase media and legislative actions that support the understanding of the scientific study of mental health and wellbeing and the role inclusion, diversity, equity, and anti-racism play in individual and community health outcomes.
Three things this subcommittee is working on are:
- Participating in disseminating information on ways to respond to current/developing events related to mental health and diversity.
- Identifying opportunities to work on legislation related to antiracism and mental health in Wisconsin and nation-wide.
- Advocate for the wellbeing of all Wisconsinites, in particular populations who have been historically marginalized.
