05/25/2022 – Mental Health Public Awareness for Workforce Legislation Passes Senate (S.7577)

Thanks to the leadership of Senators Brouk and Ramos, the Senate passed the Public Awareness Workforce legislation that would provide education to the workforce about mental health through the Office of Mental Health and the Department of Labor.

This legislation is consistent with the movement to end the stigma of mental health across the lifespan. In this case, it is workforce related but the bill transcends all ages.

The Assembly has been strong leaders in this movement as well and we urge passage of this important legislation
