Gov. Tom Wolf today announced a focused all-agency effort and anti-stigma campaign, “Reach Out PA: Your Mental Health Matters,” aimed at expanding resources and the state’s comprehensive support of mental health and related healthcare priorities in Pennsylvania. The governor announced several initiatives and reviews the administration will undertake for commonwealth agencies to bolster the effort. Further, over the coming weeks, agencies will announce additional initiatives. The governor was joined by mental health advocates, social workers, educators, military veterans and cabinet secretaries in making the announcement.

“For those struggling with their mental health, we have one message: your mental health matters and it’s okay to reach out for help,” Wolf said. “We are stepping up our efforts to ensure every Pennsylvanian can access mental health care and more agencies can respond to the challenges facing Pennsylvanians struggling with their mental health. The act of reaching out for help – or to help – can make a huge difference for someone struggling.”
