Step Up is a partner in a new Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action – Mental Health Now (mhNOW). Launched this month in New York, mhNOW is a commitment of global community partners to engage 30 cities by 2030 to close the mental health gap. Below, President Clinton launches the mhNOW Initiative at the 2016 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting joined by Step Up President & CEO Tod Lipka (second from left) and others. As a partner in mhNOW, Step Up will be sharing its model of bringing permanent supportive housing to scale in Los Angeles. Step Up’s model of public/private parternships is making major headway in changing the face of ENDING homelessness in major cities. “The United Nations offically embraced the plan to promote Mental Health and Well Being in its Sustainable Development Goals for 2030,” said Lipka. “Step Up is proud to be a part of the mhNOW initiative empowering cities around the globe to make mental health a priority. Permanent Supportive Housing is Healthcare.”mhnow-commitment-to-action-2016
