HR 15, as amended, Conway.

WHEREAS, The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) mission is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America’s communities; and
WHEREAS, SAMHSA was established in 1992 and directed by the United States Congress to effectively target substance abuse and mental health services to the people most in need and to translate research in these areas more effectively and more rapidly into the general health care system; and
WHEREAS, Behavioral health services improve health status and reduce health care and other costs to society; and
WHEREAS, Continued improvement in the delivery and financing of prevention, treatment, and recovery support services provides a cost-effective opportunity to advance and protect the nation’s health; and
WHEREAS, Addressing the complex mental health needs of children, youth, and families today is important to the well-being of the State of California; and
WHEREAS, It is appropriate that a day should be set apart to direct our thoughts toward our children’s mental health and well-being; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Assembly of the State of California, That the Assembly proclaims May 9, 2013, “National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day” in the State of California and urges our citizens and all agencies and organizations interested in meeting every child’s mental health needs to observe exercises that will acquaint the people of California with the benefits of a year-round program for children and youth with mental health needs and their families; and be it further
Resolved, That the Chief Clerk of the Assembly transmit copies of this resolution to the author for appropriate distribution.
