NAMI California CEO Jessica Cruz joined the California Hospital Association’s Carmela Coyle, another member of our Behavioral Health Action team, for discussion with Dr. Thomas Insel, the newly appointed key advisor to Governor Newsom on mental health. Dr. Insel is helping lead California to address behavioral health challenges and we were thrilled to sit down with him for our Behavioral Health Champion interview series.

Note: Dr. Insel has been booked as a speaker at our 2020 conference.
