States Focus on Mental Illness

Providing better care for people with severe mental illness is gaining increased attention across the U.S. 

Louisiana, Illinois, and Idaho recently passed much improved and much needed legislation to helping people with severe mental illnesses receive the treatment they need.  Virginia, even though not as far as the state should have gone, did make some improvements. 

California is launching an effort to help implement Laura’s Law in more counties across our largest state. 

These and other state activities are available in the latest issue of Catalyst from the Treatment Advocacy CenterJoin the list, it’s a great way to stay informed.
