California’s most vulnerable need treatment, not tents.
About Prop. 1
For the first time in decades, Californians will have the ability to transform the state’s mental health system – modernizing to meet the needs of all Californians.
Proposition 1 – Treatment not Tents – will refocus billions of dollars in existing funds to prioritize Californians with the deepest mental health needs, living in encampments, or suffering the worst substance use issues.
It will expand mental health and addiction services for tens of thousands of Californians each year, create housing settings where over 11,000 Californians with the severest mental health needs can live, recover, stabilize and thrive, and provide $1 billion to ensure our veterans experiencing homelessness, mental health and substance abuse issues are given the care they deserve.
