Gov. Newsom targets behavioral health czar
Capitol Weekly

We are excited, encouraged, and grateful to see Gov. Gavin Newsom’s early focus on the need to fund and transform behavioral health care in California.

In his recent budget presentation, Newsom made it clear he intends to create a statewide mental health “czar” who will focus on securing and implementing resources to address one of the most fundamental health care needs of our time.
