Just because the dust has started to settle in the media with regards to Governor Corbett’s proposed 20% cut to MH/ID funding, doesn’t mean that there isn’t still reason for concern.  MHA-PA is encouraging folks to keep making themselves heard and keep raising questions and concerns about the proposed cuts by letting the Governor, and your state representatives know how you feel about the proposed cuts.  Keep in mind that people’s lives are at stake and that it isn’t just numbers on paper.
