MAY 24, 10am California State Capitol West Steps.
Right 2 Treatment, VOM&O and other mental health activist rally to protest the use of Prop 63 tax dollars being used to fund a “Mental Health Matters” event put on by the State Director of Mental Health. Prop 63 was passed by voters over a decade ago with the intent of providing services for our most mentally disabled, this event is another example of how Prop 63 funds continue to be misspent on “feel good” programs and events. Misuse of Prop 63 tax dollars are one reason funding and services for mentally ill people are not being provided and why many continue to cycle through the revolving doors of unsupported mental health treatment.
