Behavioral Health Matters

It's time for action

Behavioral Health Action is a coalition of more than 50 statewide organizations united to raise awareness about behavioral health issues in California.

About Us

Finding our voice together

A unique, first-of-its-kind alliance of not only hospitals and healthcare providers, but also groups representing families and individuals, the criminal justice system, labor, local government, not-for-profit organizations and business. We are engaging California's leaders and bringing people together to talk about positive solutions to behavioral health and stopping stigma.
