The Mental Health Parity Act (MHPA) was signed into law by Governor Kemp on April 4th, 2022. The legislation, sponsored by House Speaker David Ralston and co-authored by Rep. Todd Jones and Rep. Mary Margaret Oliver, was crafted with input from the Behavioral Health Reform and Innovation Commission, advocates, and members of the community. The changes brought about by the Mental Health Parity Act have important implications for Georgia’s Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Plan (CANPP).
