Good news! Our CEO, Jessica Cruz, has been selected as a member of the California Health and Human Services Agency Behavioral Health Task Force.

Cruz will help collaborate on crafting bold solutions for our diverse communities as part of the newly formed group made up of a broad group of stakeholders from both the public and private sectors, including people living with behavioral health conditions, family members, advocates, providers, health plans, counties, and state agency leaders. The goal: to create the behavioral health system needed to ensure a healthy California for all.

The Behavioral Health Task Force is chaired by California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly. “This Task Force will work toward a behavioral health system that provides timely access to high-quality care for all Californians,” he said.
