INEQUALITY. DISCRIMINATION. JOIN our partnership. TEACH the public and politicians. TOUCH our communities of support. TRANSFORM state policies and priorities.
MediCal does not pay for "medically necessary treatment" for mental illnesses--and only guarantees treatment for physical illnesses. Mental illness Treatment is isolated from mainstream health care. This is the choice of the California Legislature and the Governor. Help expose the inhumane results that cost lives and waste money. Join our Action Partnership to win Equality. Right To Treatment campaign must change state laws that are the source of discrimination and stigma of mental illnesses.
OUR VISION. We will establish a right to treatment of serious mental illnesses that is equal to the guarantees for physical illnesses. Medicaid must entitle members to the same timely access, quality, and standards of care in a unified Public Health System. We envision an integrated system that recognizes mental health as an integral part ofmainstream medicine.
