A Crisis of Humanity | CAMHPRO

(Note from Executive Director: CAMHPRO continues to advocate for the peer voice in all aspects of mental health policy at the state level. With a strong stance of opposition to Senate Bill 326 and 43, CAMHPRO has been present at hearings and representing our members in meetings with legislators and policy makers to voice concerns and to offer solutions and changes. Most recently, CAMHPRO, as part of the Peers Advocating for Rights and Recovery (PARR) coalition, joined in a convening on Aug. 22 for hearings about Senate Bill 326. PARR partners, including CalVoices, Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance of California, Mental Health America of California, California Youth Empowerment Network, and Disability Rights California, invited peers from across the state to join at the event in solidarity with t-shirts and speaking up during the hearings. Groups met in front of the Capitol building throughout the day to support each other and to network. Katy Sommerfeld, CAMHPRO Office Administrator, participated in the event and was later invited to be a witness at a hearing the following week. This is a story of her experience and observations.)
