Mental Health Policy

On average, 800-900 bills are submitted to the California state legislature each year.  Several dozen of these have to do with mental health policy. After a bill is introduced to the legislature it goes through committees from February to August. During this time, legislative staffers research the policy and its implications, when research institutions can play a pivotal role. Our communities benefit when new laws are informed by the latest research in the field of mental health and neuroscience. The Behavioral Health Centers of Excellence at UC Davis and UCLA are presenting at an informational brown bag lecture this April for legislative staff to promote communication between research and policy. 

Mental Health Makes the Headlines

Melanie Gareau, Ph.D., a physiologist at UC Davis, provides insight on the relationship between the gut and the brain.
