Fantastic news from the Capitol!
Our NAMI-CA sponsored bill, SB 1363, has been signed by the Governor!
This bill creates the National Alliance on Mental Illness, California Voluntary Tax Contribution fund (VCF) and allows taxpayers to donate to the fund using their state tax form.
Funds will support the family and consumer voice in Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) programs. CIT programs train law enforcement officers to assist, and engage safely with, individuals experiencing a mental health crisis.
This bill is a critical first step to building a stronger family and consumer voice in CIT programs across the state.
