S.426 The Mental Health Court Program Act Example Letter

To the honorable Senator SENATOR’S NAME,

My name is YOUR NAME from YOUR LOCATION, SC, and I am writing you in regards to the SC Bill S.426, the Mental Health Court Program Act, that will be presented to the SC Senate Judiciary Committee. I am urging you to please support this bill as it passes through the committee. The Mental Health Court Program Act will work to expand the three already-existing mental health courts in SC to all 46 counties in the state. The passing of this bill will save the lives of many mentally ill individuals in SC, along with millions of dollars in the state’s budget. Mental health courts divert qualifying mentally ill offenders away from the criminal justice system and into appropriate programs for treatment.

Please do support this bill as it passes through the committee. It not only helps to benefit the lives of those with mental illness in our community, but will also save our beautiful state of SC millions of dollars annually that can be used to fund other needs.

Sincerely,
YOUR NAME

2015 Senate Judiciary Committee
