NAMI California is proud to announce that we are in support of Proposition 2 and the No Place Like Home Program to help provide housing for individuals with mental illness.
We are in support of this proposition which provides critical services to Californians who are experiencing homelessness and living with a severe mental illness.

However, we took time to move to a support position on Proposition 2. A few affiliates expressed concern to NAMI California staff that the measure, if passed, would decrease the amount of mental health funding received by county behavioral health departments. We take these concerns very seriously, as our number one priority is ensuring that our membership and their family members get the care they deserve and need.
We believe this is a strong program that will shore up significant gaps in our current mental health system. Thank you for your patience during our assessment of this far-reaching legislation.
