Read letter from Mental Health America of California…

Hello Friends,

Mental Health America of California (MHAC) is proud to be sponsoring AB 8 (Chu) which requires there be at least one mental health professional on all K-12 campuses.

The recommendation that lead to this bill came directly from the California Youth Empowerment Network youth board.  This is a direct request from young people. They want mental health support at school. We must step up and honor their request. 

Taking action is easy, here are several ways you can help!
