SB 906 Peer Cert. VETOED! Persistence is key!

From Sally Zinman, Executive Director, CAMHPRO

Governor Brown has Vetoed SB 906. The consumer and larger mental health stakeholder community will pursue California state certification and, by all accounts, will have a better chance with a new Governor.

Persistence is the key to success, and essential to advocacy. Persistence and hope. We will have peer certification in California!

See the Governor’s veto message (below), which in my opinion, is not knowledgeable of the purpose or content of the bill.
