Advocacy

Headway has recently been working on shifting its advocacy focus from the State, to local levels. Right now we are focusing on Public Transportation, or the lack of it in our service area (St Charles, Warren and Lincoln counties) and how it affects our members. We are trying to focus our efforts on ways to take action to advocate for change. The following is how some quotes and thoughts by our members on how their lives might be improved by the availability of an effective public transportation system.

Upcoming Events for Advocacy:

Headway clubhouse will be traveling to Jefferson City on April 16th for a rally at the Capitol for sup-porting Medicaid expansion in Missouri. Headway members and staff will attend the rally at 2:00 and hopefully visit our state legislators to advocate on behalf of the clubhouse and mental health services in general. If you are interested in attending the rally and are able to walk around for extended periods, please contact Tom, Charlie or Shannon as soon as possible. For more information, please contact Headway.
