Washington, DC –U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-39) reaffirmed her commitment to expanding access to mental health care resources by helping introduce the Stopping the Mental Health Pandemic Act (H.R. 588). This bipartisan bill, led by fellow Orange County Rep. Katie Porter (CA-45), would create a grant program at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to assist state and local entities in addressing mental health needs of patients during COVID-19.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted each of our lives as we are largely confined to our homes and has reminded us of the importance of mental health care,” said Kim. “I am proud to help in this bipartisan effort to equip our state and local health care providers with the resources they need to care for our patients across California’s 39th District and the nation. I hope my constituents know that it’s okay to not be okay, and while there is a light at the end of the tunnel of this pandemic, resources are on the way.”
