These reforms include a host of Treatment Advocacy Center priorities, including provisions to increase the number of psychiatric beds nationwide, elevate the federal focus on mental illness by creating a federal position of assistant secretary for mental health and substance use disorders and to address the criminalization of untreated mental illness.
