Now in our sixth year of operation, the Steinberg Institute is capitalizing on the political momentum created by a new governor who has prioritized mental health policy by pursuing an ambitious and bold legislative agenda. We seek again to have an outsized impact on California’s policy agenda with bills that would end the discrimination and roadblocks too frequently faced by people seeking care, put an end to turf wars that keep qualified professionals from helping patients in need of treatment, enable additional housing types to provide badly needed supportive housing, find out how many people with mental illness are living in board-and-care homes, and update the LPS Act for the first time in over 50 years.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We welcome your input and would deeply appreciate your support
