Support SB 22: the Mental Health Compliance Act of 2013
SB 22, introduced by Senator Beall, will ensure equal treatment for thousands suffering from mental health and substance abuse disorders. Access to mental health and substance use treatment remains a challenge for too many Californians. Despite the passage of federal and state parity laws, only 60 percent of people suffering mental illness actually get treatment, according to federal health officials.
SB 22 would enforce the law and hold health insurers accountable.
Your support is critical to the passage of SB 22.
