(R-Calif.) recently on Capitol Hill. Miller is a longtime supporter of initiatives to benefit mentally ill Americans, including the quest for parity in insurance coverage and increases in the budgets of the mental health and substance abuse institutes at the National Institutes of Health. Sully’s visit is part of an ongoing program at APA—through its political action committee, APAPAC—
in which APA members educate federal and state legislators and policymakers about mental health issues.
