Fund 988 in Maryland

The Maryland General Assembly

To fully serve people in crisis, Maryland must take steps to make sure our statewide 988 line has the resources it needs. The MD988 Fund Campaign is working to secure dedicated funding to support the continuum of behavioral health crisis services to meet Maryland’s needs. Sign this petition to let your legislators know you support funding Maryland 988.
