Marie Waldron, State Assemblymember –As a member of the Assembly Committee on Health, promoting mental health for all has been one of my primary focuses as your State Representative. With our busy and sometimes overwhelming lives, it is important to take time to focus on your own mental well-being. Talking about it to a trusted person, or seeing a mental health provider are important steps.
Unfortunately, one-in-five U.S. adults live with a mental illness, ranging from mild to severe. If you, or a loved one are experiencing symptoms of a mental illness, please consider these resources available to you:
– The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
– Behavioral Health Treatment Service Locator
If you need someone to talk to, do not hesitate to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255. Thank you for your continued support. It is an honor representing you in the California State Assembly.
