California struggles in national study of mental health access and care
Sacramento Business Journal

Oakland-based Kaiser Permanente has taken heat recently on the issue of access to mental health care, but a new national study suggests that any such problems extend throughout the Golden State’s health-care landscape.

California ranked 37th of the 50 states on mental health care access, according to the new national Mental Health America report, “Parity or Disparity: The State of Mental Health in America.” The report is said to be the first to rank every state on the adequacy of its mental health services.
