Founded in January 2015 by Sacramento Mayor and former California Senate President pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg, the Steinberg Institute is a leading nonprofit public policy institute that engages in effective and comprehensive mental health public policymaking.  We believe that access to quality mental health is the most pressing civil rights issues of our time, and we aim to create a system of care in which brain health is treated with the same sweep and urgency as physical health.
