Stories of courage and hope are popping up everywhere, and as we slide into the second week of National Recovery Month we’d like to share the story of Jordana Steinberg, daughter of mental health advocate and state Senate Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, co-author of Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA).
Jordana shares her story of growing up with severe childhood mood disorder with The Sacramento Bee, and explains why she wants to speak out against the mental health stigma in the video below. We welcome Jordana’s story with open ears and hearts and want to thank her for her incredible courage to speak openly and her determination to provide a microphone for those without a voice.
We also want to thank Darrell Steinberg for being such a tireless advocate for mental health issues since his first appearance in the state assembly in 1998. Since 2004, MHSA has generated around $9 billion in mental health funding, and we here at Telecare are proud to be part of this incredible change he helped create.
