Jessica Cruz, CEO of NAMI California today issued the following statement following Governor Gavin Newsom’s presentation of his May Budget Revision:
“Thank you, Governor Newsom for your commitment to behavioral health as part of your #CABlueprint. The important work and funding of CARE Court is essential to provide proper care and support with accountability.
This proposal is a major step forward, but additional support is needed. Funding for critical programs like the proposed state partnership with Family-to-Family is essential to support those living with mental illness and those who care for them.
We look forward to continuing to work with the legislature in the coming weeks to ensure critical programs like Family-to-Family receive funding.”
