WASHINGTON D.C. (WHTC) -- A press conference will take place Wednesday morning at 10 A.M. in response to an amendment cosponsored by U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow of Michigan and Roy Blunt of Missouri.  Award-winning actress and mental health advocate Glenn Close, founder of Bring Change 2 Mind, will be on hand to urge Congress to pass the bipartisan mental health legislation approved in committee last week.  Last week, a version of the “Excellence in Mental Health Act” made it through the Senate Finance Committee as an amendment.  The amendment would set up demonstration programs to improve mental health care quality and expand access to mental health treatment.  It is supported by mental health, veterans and law enforcement organizations.
