Mental Health Service Developments in California: A TEDx Talk by Darrell Steinberg

Learning

Darrell Steinberg’s TEDx talk is about his vision of the future of mental health. Darrell Steinberg is a California state senator. Steinberg discusses an early intervention in psychosis program which is being rolled out in California. Here in the UK, there is a lot of experience with early intervention in psychosis (EIP) services and it’s likely that the Californian program will replicate the success seen in the UK and Australia. Steinberg also discusses the issue of mental health in homeless people. Steinberg also talks about parity of mental and physical health. These are important themes that echo some of the discussion about mental health here in the UK.
