The FLMHAC caucuses annually to prioritize legislation that will improve the mental health landscape in the state of Florida. The following are legislative priorities we are actively promoting in our state.
The laws governing involuntary examinations and treatment can be improved to provide more immediate response to individuals in need of critical services.
We support expansion of Medicaid benefits to all uninsured low-income Floridians to broaden access to behavioral health care.
Evidence-based treatment of individuals experiencing their first episode of psychosis can dramatically decrease the chance of life-time disability.
Coordinating behavioral health services at the county level leads to better response and treatment for individuals with behavioral health conditions.
