Thank you for your editorial support of the passage of AB 2541, which would fund the mental health system "to make a difference."
My family has had two victims of brain disfunction, a 21-year-old with schizophrenia and a 75-year-old with Alzheimer's disease. Both diseases are mysterious in origin but physical in nature and progressive. One does not have to have taken drugs to be ill with schizophrenia; unknown before the Industrial Revolution, it is increasing rapidly. Alzheimer's was rare 100 years ago but it also is increasing rapidly. There is no known cure for either disease.
