Behavioral health is an issue that we must not ignore. Anyone at anytime can be effected and not all signs are noticed and are ignored. We must help and contribute anyway possible for mental issues.
California has many programs that help the state and those suffering from substance abuse and mental health issues. I believe we can help the taxpayers with subsidies or having the private sector compete for contracts.
My number one priority is the safety and well being of our citizens of my district, state and country. We have to help those who want help and always be there for ones who may need a helping hand. The most important thing is availability and education on mental health issues, knowing that they are not alone who may suffer. Dialogue is the key to success.
