Email Your Legislator – Introduce yourself

If you are struggling with knowing where to start, here are some ideas to get you started. These are intended for general introductions to your legislators, so they do not have any specific bill information in them.

Hello (Senator or Representative) __________,

I am (your name here) and a constituent of yours. (add in where you live/work here). I will be at the capitol on Tuesday next week for the Iowa Mental Health Counselors Association (or LMFT/ACA/Social work) day on the hill. IMHCA is a professional organization for licensed counselors in the state. As licensed counselors, we are able to provide therapy services including assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health conditions. We will have a group of mental health providers there throughout the afternoon and we would love to meet you. There are a lot of impactful legislative efforts this year in mental health, and we look forward to talking with you about them. We hope you will use our mental health expertise to pass meaningful legislation in this state. I am happy to be a resource to you any time on this topic and look forward to meeting with you.
