Email Governor Today! SB 428
SB 428 (Pan), was passed out of the state legislature today, and is moving to the Governor’s desk for signature!
With strong support from over 250 organizations across the state, SB 428 would require all schools to train some of their teachers and staff in a program like Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA). If passed, this bill will bring needed training into all California schools and provide educators with the vital skills and confidence needed to support adolescents suffering from mental health or substance use issues.
The County Behavioral Health Directors Association of California, Children Now, and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation provided support and hard work in advocating for the passage of this bill. As SB 428 is making its way to the Governor’s desk, it is important to communicate your support to the Governor’s office.
