While we have other bills and will support other issues, these Legislative Objectives are our rallying points.
1) Adequate funding for community mental health services 2) Eliminate barriers to effective co-occurring services for mental health and substance abuse treatment.3) Develop and support mental health crisis care for children, adolescents and adults.4) Improve transition services for children aging out of the children’s mental health treatment system5) Develop funding for quality mental health peer support services. 6) Oppose solitary confinement in both the treatment and corrections systems, realizing that there is still a need for short-term protective custody for the safety of the person, caregivers, and others.7) Support effective transition services from public health and correction institutions into communities8) Improve the interface between the education and mental illness treatment systems.9) Support the identification and elimination of unnecessary and costly rules in the mental illness treatment system.
