NC Gubernatorial candidate and current Lieutenant Governor Bev Perdue released her platform on mental health reform last Friday.
“I know that changing mental health care in North Carolina is something far more easily said than done. Yet we cannot stop until we have a system that achieves access to high-quality mental health, developmental disability, and substance abuse services for all North Carolinians. We certainly need better funding. Our low standing in the National Alliance on Mental Illness’ rankings of expenditures per capita is inexcusable. But funding is only one piece of this puzzle. We must work on many fronts to achieve the changes and improvements we need.”
