I believe our mental health infrastructure in Colorado needs to be dramatically improved. I’ve supported strengthening our mental health parity laws, requiring better insurance and Medicaid coverage of mental health care, integration of physical and behavioral health care systems, and better mental health care in our schools. As a member of the Opioid and Other Substance Use Disorders Interim Study Committee for the last three summers, I’ve sponsored numerous bills to improve prevention, harm reduction, treatment, and recovery systems, as well as addressing substance use issues in the criminal justice system.
