    We couldn't host Mental Health Advocacy Day at the Capitol without the support of our wonderful sponsors!  The Kansas Mental Health Coalition relies on our generous sponsors in order to facilitate the opportunity for hundreds of individuals to gather at the Kansas Statehouse each year to advocate for important behavioral health issues and to enjoy the opportunity to meet and collaborate with other Kansans.
