Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $4,429.60 (includes buyer's premium)


Extremely rare ALS as president, one page, 6.5 x 4, embossed White House stationery, no date. Response to a woman entreating for greater awareness and federal assistance within the mental health sector, in full: "Thanks for the letter—it means a lot. When things get tough, just remember I'm here fighting for you!" In very fine condition. Accompanied by the original White House mailing envelope.

On December 13, 2016, President Obama signed into law the 21st Century Cures Act and subsequently authorized $6.3 billion in funding for the research and treatment of physical and mental health issues. Division B of the law, the ‘Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Reform Act of 2016,’ which concentrates on the prevention and care of mental illnesses and substance abuse, is widely viewed as one of the most significant attempts at mental health reform in decades. A glimmer of hope for many of the millions of Americans silently struggling with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other mental health conditions, the law’s passage has conversely been viewed as a bipartisan triumph, as Obama noted on the day of signing: ‘It is wonderful to see how well Democrats and Republicans in the closing day of this Congress came together around a common cause. And I think it indicates the power of this issue and how deeply it touches every family across America.’
