This week, CSAP joined Senators Eggman and Wiener, the Big City Mayors Coalition, NAMI California, and others to announce the introduction of legislation to overhaul the State’s behavioral health care system. CSAP Governmental Affairs Committee Chair, Dr. Emily Wood did an amazing job when it was her turn to speak and, at the end when the press started peppering the group with questions, she fielded most of the questions. Great job and thanks for being in Sacramento for this Dr. Wood!
