Mental Health Spending
In this photo taken Thursday, July 26, 2012, children and adults uses a play parachute as past of an exercise activity during a wellness program run jointly by the La Familia Counseling Center, INC, and the YMCA in Sacramento, Calif. Voters approved Proposition 63 in 2004 to provide funding for mental health services. A fifth of the revenue goes to activities, like wellness programs, to prevent mental illnesses from becoming more severe, but some mental health advocates say the money should go to treatment. Supporters of the wellness programs say they are the best way to get people who might have mental illness in the door where their needs can be identified and treated.(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
