The Road Ahead: Challenges And Opportunities for Behavioral Health Care During the Implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
Nov. 7-8, 2013
This is an invitation-only event.
This year's symposium will explore progress being made toward achieving the goal of increasing access to affordable, high-quality mental health and substance abuse prevention and treatment services as the so-called "Affordable Care Act" is implemented. A series of presentations, panel discussions, and workgroup sessions will explore three areas of key importance: outreach and enrollment, access to care, and service delivery.
Members of the public are invited to watch the live webcast of the symposium and to join the discussion by following @CarterCenter and using the hashtag #CarterMH13.
An agenda for watching the live webcast will be posted on this page soon.
What do you get when you open your mailbox? I mail letters my sister three times per month, simply because she enjoys getting mail. She is too busy to write back, but we are very close and talk daily.
What do you enjoy getting in your mailbox?
Happy Fourth of July to One and All!
ROCK TAVERN – The November election for the new 18th Congressional District will pit Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney against Republican incumbent Nan Hayworth. Maloney easily won the five-way Democratic primary on Tuesday.
“We are going to tell people we can make Congress work but we have to make a change because it’s broken and it’s not working for middle class families,” he said, adding it is time to vote out the Tea Party. “They had their chance and they have failed. It’s time for new leadership.”
Telling his union supporters at Teamsters local 445 in Rock Tavern that they “represent the very heart of America,” Maloney said he is “sick and tired of people running down working people.”
Petitioning starts tomorrow in New York State for the New York Senate race that I am working on. Where are you doing your political work this year?
I am working for Chris Eachus for NYS Senate.
I also would love to see Liz Warren elected, and Nan Hayworth defeated.
I am going to attend a meet and greet tonight in New Windsor, NY to meet the 5 Democratic candidates to replace Nan Hayworth in the new 18th Congressional District. The candidates are:
Mayor Matt Alexander, of Wappingers Falls;
Dr. Rich Becker, Town of Cortlandt Councilman;
Duane Jackson, businessman from Buchanan;
Sean Patrick Maloney, attorney and former Clinton, Spitzer and Paterson aide; and
Mayor Tom Wilson, of Tuxedo Park.
Below the fold I have included links to each candidates web page. Have a great day Kossacks!

Below the fold we will take a look at each of these municipalities..
I found this article and thought that it might be enjoyed by the group.
A researcher at the University of Missouri has developed a model to help people become happier and stay that way.
“Previous research shows that an individual’s happiness can increase after major life changes, such as starting a new romantic relationship, but over time happiness tends to return to a previous level,” he said. “Through our research, we developed a model to help people maintain higher levels of happiness derived from beneficial changes.”
This year incumbent Republican Senator Bill Larkin is facing a very formidable challenge from Democratic Orange County Legislator Christopher Eachus. I plan on volunteering for the campaign and posted this diary to as a place to keep track of campaign information and to encourage others to do the same.
Here is the campaign's website
I am going to my first volunteer meeting tomorrow night. I must admit, I am excited!
Ever had one of those days? Ever heard or said, "Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays?" Have you ever just wanted to stay in bed and hope for a better tomorrow?
That is how I feel today. I posted here because misery loves company. Please join me in praying / hoping for a better tomorrow.
And feel free to chime in on what is bothering you. Getting it out can be helpful.
Below the fold I spilled my beans on why today is one of those days that just seems so hard. Please reply and do the same.
Hello all. mdmc from democratic underground. I was dismissed for suggesting that it was all right to vote Green in a solid blue state. I won't make that mistake here.
