The U.S. House of Representatives approved the 21st Century Cures Act by a vote of 392-26. Included in the bill were mental health reforms spearheaded by Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Tim Murphy (R-PA), which were based largely off his bill, H.R. 2646, the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act.

“With the House’s strong support of these critical reforms, we’re one step closer to delivering meaningful reforms to families in mental health crisis,” said full committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) and Chairman Murphy. “We have worked to reduce stigma around this important issue, and let folks know it’s okay to ask for help. Throughout our multi-year, multi-Congress effort to advance solutions to a broken system, we’ve raised awareness and helped identify ways to help those around us. These reforms have been a long time coming and we look forward to the Senate quickly following in our footsteps.”
