JB Pritzker Says Funding Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatments Is a Priority


















From the City Club of Chicago — JB Pritzker the Democratic nominee for Governor, reveals the struggles his mother went through as an alcoholic and how that underscores his commitment to providing healthcare treatments for those suffering from substance abuse and mental health issues.

Mr Pritzker is joined at the City Club of Chicago by Rep Juliana Stratton, his Lt Governor running mate. They discuss their policy approach to addressing these needs and why prevention of many problems would lead to the state saving money, by keeping people out of prison or in much costlier care that is incurred under the current system.
