NAMI Voluntary Tax Contribution for CIT approved by Governor

 

Legislation Update:
SB 1363 signed by the Governor!
Dear Team NAMI,
 
Fantastic news from the Capitol!
Our NAMI-CA sponsored bill, SB 1363, has been signed by the Governor! 
 
This bill creates the National Alliance on Mental Illness, California Voluntary Tax Contribution fund (VCF) and allows taxpayers to donate to the fund using their state tax form.
Funds will support the family and community voice in Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) programs. CIT programs train law enforcement officers to assist, and engage safely with, individuals experiencing a mental health crisis. 
This bill is a critical first step to building a stronger family and consumer voice in CIT programs across the state.

Thank you to all who sent in letters for this important bill!

SB 906 (Creating Peer Support Specialists) is still on the Governor’s desk! We are collecting letters up until he makes a decision. Click here to learn how to help.
