Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer has made delivering more mental health and addiction treatment to San Diegans in need one of her highest priorities since joining the Board of Supervisors in 2021.
In the past the County failed to make vital behavioral health investments, but since Supervisor Lawson-Remer joined the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, she successfully secured 27% more funding for mental health care and substance use disorder services. Plus, another $100 million in opioid manufacturer lawsuit settlement money to fight the fentanyl and opioid crises.
Supervisor Lawson-Remer's policies and votes have strengthened patient care in San Diego County. But more work is needed to deliver quality, accessible, and affordable health care for every San Diegan.
