Re "Commitment needed to mental health services" (Viewpoints, Feb. 2): Kudos to state Sen. Darrell Steinberg. We are in agreement that our nation, and specifically Sacramento, needs more money spent on mental health. We are in a position to help. The Mexican American Addiction Program, Inc. can do many things for those in the community who suffer from mental health illnesses. Our mission is to provide counseling to individuals and families experiencing substance abuse and mental illness challenges through prevention, intervention, and treatment leading to a safer and more socially responsible community. When Steinberg is successful in reallocating these funds to help the citizens of Sacramento, I hope he will call upon us.
