On February 17, 2011 Rep. Grace F. Napolitano and a panel of mental health advocates and experts, including LA Laker Ron Artest and champion boxer Mia St. John, will examine the Mental Health in Schools Act, a bill authored by Napolitano to allocate funding to mental health services in schools.

Artest, who grew up in adverse conditions, has made several appearance as a mental health advocate.  In a recent visit to a Los Angeles middle school, Artest told kids, “When you think about mental health, you don’t have to be afraid.”
