Mental and behavioral health is a growing concern across the country. Jordana Steinberg, a Sierra College student who recently began sharing her story about overcoming mental illness, will speak to the UC Davis community on January 12. Jordana inspires other students by telling about her struggles and emphasizing that recovery is possible. Jordana’s father, former Senator Darrell Steinberg, has long been a champion of mental health for all Californians and is currently director of policy and advocacy at the UC Davis Behavioral Health Center of Excellence.
In addition to the lecture, student organizations centered on mental health and wellness tabled to showcase resources available at UC Davis.
