Tim Murphy, U.S. Representative (R-Penn.)

Congressman Tim Murphy, Ph.D, believes in rebuilding the nation’s broken mental health system. As chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, Murphy conducted a year-long investigation with multiple congressional hearings, forums, interviews and research into why those who need help the most have been the least likely to get it. Dr. Murphy, who is also a clinical psychologist, will discuss his groundbreaking Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act (H.R. 3717).
