How to Move our Newsletter to Your "Primary" Inbox

Hello subscribers to our Western Mass RLC newsletter! We’re happy to have you as a reader.

Have you not received our newsletter lately, or had trouble finding it in your inbox?

Some of our Gmail users have been having trouble, due to a change in how Gmail handles incoming mail; it redirects our newsletter automatically to your “Promotions” tab, rather than your “Primary” tab where mail is more easily seen.

If you're unsure about how to fix this, here are some instructions.
1) Here's how your Gmail inbox tabs look right now:
Mail in Promotions Box
2) Drag-and-drop the newsletter email into the "Primary" tab:
Gmail Move Newsletter
3) Make sure to choose "Yes" when this box pops up:
Gmail Are You Sure 

From now on, the newsletter will arrive in your "Primary" tab.

Thanks to all our subscribers!

  • The Murphy Bills and Beyond

    In June of 2015, Representative Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania re-introduced the "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act" (HR 2646), better known as the Murphy Bill.  A month later, Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut introduced a very similar bill in the Senate called the "Mental Health Reform Act of 2015" (S2680).  Both pieces of legislation threatened to dramatically increase the use of force and dismantle many of the more progressive and healing alternatives that have been developed in recent years. As of November 2016 the fate of both bills remained uncertain.

    Meanwhile, another piece of legislation called 21st Century Cures was in development and garnering increasing bipartisan support. A sweeping and expansive healthcare bill, 21st Century Cures was, initially, minimally focused on mental health provisions. Having been stalled in part due to resistance from Senate Democrats' concerns that the bill was dangerously empowering for the pharmaceutical industry, 21st Century Cures also faced an uncertain fate in November. However, the election of President Trump and consequent fears for the bill’s fate prompted a reworking of the bill that also included the absorption of many aspects of HR 2646, “Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis.”

    21st Century Cures was passed by the House and Senate on November 30th and December 7th of last year, respectively. On December 13, 21st Century Cures (now including substantial portions drawn directly from HR 2646, "Helping Familties in Mental Health Crisis") was signed into law by President Obama.
