Californians aren't getting the mental healthcare they're legally guaranteed
from Chico Enterprise Record
State Sen. Jim Beall is angry. Four times now, he has introduced legislation to better enforce state and federal “parity” laws, which require equal treatment of mental and physical health problems. Four times, that legislation has failed. What's more, more than half of Californians believe that most people with mental health conditions can’t get the services they need, according to a poll conducted last year by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the California Health Care Foundation. As he enters his final year in the Legislature, the San Jose Democrat plans what he calls a “full-frontal assault”.
