Please come advocate for mental health personal care attendants:


Do you have concerns about the PCA program?

Do you think PCAs need a pay increase and benefits?

Do you get all the supports you need? Do you get enough

Do you think the eligibility process is too cumbersome?

Do you worry about having to go into a nursing home? Or
about getting PCA services for your child?

What are your ideas to make the program better?!?

Speak out about the PCA program!
