Dear friends and supporters,

I am thrilled to let you know that SB 10, which will create state certification for peers, is on its way to the Governor.

Your unwavering support and enthusiasm has gotten us this far, and we need a final push to make sure the bill gets signed. We are hopeful that this new administration will keep its promise to take action on mental health. Let’s make sure they know how important this is to so many people.

The Governor’s office needs to hear from us- as soon as possible. Attached is a template letter that you can personalize. Please deliver to the Governor, or email to Sunshine and Tania, cc-d.

Please share this with anyone that might like to join in. Thank you for all you have done and are still doing to make peer certification a  reality in California.
