Statewide Advocacy: Georgia Behavioral Health Reform and Innovation 

Resilient Georgia has supported the Governor’s Behavioral Health Reform and Innovation Commission (BHRIC) since its inception in 2019. Informed by the BHRIC Year 1 report recommendations, the Georgia House and Senate unanimously passed the Mental Health Parity Bill (HB 1013) in March 2022 with resounding bipartisan support, thanks in part to the leadership of Resilient Georgia Executive Board Chairperson, Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald. The BHRIC has created a new set of recommendations to further behavioral health system reform in the state. Access the BHRIC 2022 Annual Report.


The Resilient Georgia team continues to provide research, advocacy, and administrative support to BHRIC.
