Governor Gavin Newsom (D) announces his master plan to address what he describes as a mental health crisis plaguing California schools. While speaking at a press conference on Thursday, he unveiled a $4.7 billion investment into mental health services.

NEW: CA just launched a $4.7 BILLION Plan for Kids' Mental health.

That means: – More counselors in our schools – More accessible and affordable care for parents

– Less stigma around mental healthcare
