ABOUT ZORICH FELLOWSHIP IN MENTAL HEALTH POLICY

Mental health problems impact nearly every aspect of our society. Public policy makes a difference in the lives of both the people living with a mental illness and the people in their lives. Changes in policy can mean more accessible and affordable care for those struggling. Public policy is critical in transforming and improving mental health care access in the state of Texas. As the Zorich Fellow in Mental Health Policy at the Hope and Healing Center & Institute, Dr. Erica Fletcher will interact with state leaders, policymakers and other stakeholders to raise the level of discourse and improve the care and treatment of individuals living with a mental illness.
