Homeless individuals are at a greater risk of experiencing mental health illnesses. Far too often, these individuals are left alone on the street because California lacks the essential structure and workforce to provide them with treatment. I've fearlessly fought to build this necessary infrastructure and help end California's mental health crisis. When California had a $100 billion surplus in 2022, I advocated investing 10% of it ($10 billion) into mental health infrastructure and services to help Californians struggling with mental health and addiction. As your Senate Republican Leader, I promise to keep fighting for a better and more compassionate mental health system.
