• Save Alabama's Mental Health System
    Because of a shortfall in the General Fund, Alabama's Department of Mental Health will have to close the state hospitals caring for patients committed with severe mental illness and move the patients to local communities by September 30. Without enough time and money to prepare local facilities, we risk tragic consequences-- mainly death by suicide but also increases in crime and potentially homicide. We must call on our legislators to fully fund the DMH for our own safety and that of the patients.

  • Throw out the Florida PIP Bill!
    Govenor Rick Scott has led the battle to get rid of alternative healthcare availability to people who have been in a car accident. He has given absolute power to the car insurance companies to limit your care telling you where to get it, from whom and what care you will be getting. $10,000 in Florida is no more he cut your benefits down to $2500 BUT you will still pay your full premiums for insurance! Sound unconstitutional? I think so...

  • Orthomolecular Treatment Must Be Required in Treatment of Mental Disorders/Illnesses
    By signing this petition, you can bring some sanity to Washington State. Instead of paying tens of millions of dollars on psychiatric treatment that doesn't work, we could be putting that money into our schools or other important areas. You will also be forcing the government to provide the kind of mental health care that cures people instead of simply attempting to suppress their symptoms with man-made drugs.

  • Prevention First! Pass the CARE Act & Act for Our Children’s Future
    The Compassionate Assistance for Rape Emergencies Act (SB 283/HB 419) and The Act for Our Children’s Future (SB 232/HB 338) are two common sense initiatives to prevent unintended pregnancy and infections in our state population; thereby saving taxpayer money, preventing the need for abortion, and making our future generation healthier all around.

  • Allow the Affordable Care Act in Indiana
    The Governor and state legislature of Indiana are trying to prevent access to the Affordable Care Act. They are denying the State of Indiana an opportunity to become a healthier and more productive state by preventing access to this health care plan. This is just one example of many coordinated attacks by our State Government on Indiana’s middle class!

  • Let good Samaritans Donate Life!
    Most Hospitals that perform Living Donor Liver Transplants will allow a healthy individual that meets all other health, age, and lifestyle requirements to donate a portion off their liver to a needy recipient. In fact, there are many non-profit organizations, services, and websites that exist to match donors and recipients. This saves thousands of lives each year. Stanford University Hospital is an exception. The policy stated on page 6 of the Liver Transplant Program handbook states that "A potential donor must: Have an established relationship with the recipient". This is costing thousands of people their lives every year because they cannot utilize the programs out there to find a donor due to this policy. Please sign this petition to tell Stanford Hospital to please consider changing their policy, thus saving thousands of lives in the process.
