On Tuesday June 5, 2018, Representative Abdullah Hammoud introduced House Bill 6098.  “By creating a clear framework for art therapists to provide services in the state, my legislation will help many vulnerable residents explore new ways of healing and addressing their mental health concerns,” says Rep Hammoud in a statement.

Many thanks to our chapter the Michigan Association of Art Therapy (MAAT) for their hard and dedicated work leading to the introduction of this important legislation!  The National Office will continue to work closely with the chapter’s Legislative Chair Amber James, MS as the bill progresses to the Committee on Health Policy.
