Protect Michigan's Patients - Oppose Senate Bill 191
Senate Bill 191 would expand the definition of a "mental health professional" to include physician assistants, certified nurse practicioners, and clinical nurses specialist-certified, and would allow them to diagnose patients and make decisions regarding hospitalization, seclusion, and restraint. With no stated requirements for training or experience, Senate Bill 191 puts patient safety directly at risk.
The Senate has already passed Senate Bill 191, and a vote in the House is expected soon. Please contact your Representative today and urge them to protect patient safety by opposing Senate Bill 191.
