Our member organization Children Now asks that we all help move forward children’s mental health funding via SB 428 which passed the Senate and is right now in Assembly Committee. “This bill would require all CA schools to train 10% of their staff, or two staff persons, whichever is greater – including, but not limited to educators – in an evidenced-based, nationally recognized, in-person training program. Staff can enroll in a number of affordable programs…All California kids need access to these critical services. The problem is widespread, and our response must be as well.” Click for more information.
Please asap call, email, or tweet at Assembly Education Committee Chair Patrick O’Donnell.
Also, please contact your Assembly representatives. If you need to, find your legislators.
