(Des Moines, IA) Earlier this week, the Kim Reynolds for Iowa Campaign released a new campaign ad titled, “Leader.” The ad focuses on comprehensive, bipartisan mental health care reform that was signed into law this year. Governor Reynolds made mental health care a priority last legislative session and has committed to building on this success when elected to a full term this November.

“This legislation was a milestone for mental health care in Iowa,” Reynolds said. “I am proud to say it was bipartisan and a reflection of Iowans working together to make our state even better than it is today. But we cannot stop now, there’s so much more to do, and I am just getting started.”

“Governor Kim Reynolds is a leader who brought people together to make critical improvements to Iowa’s mental health care system,” said Rita Davenport, a mental health care advocate. “There’s no one better to lead our state at this important time than Governor Reynolds.”

Here’s the transcript:

I believe this bill will improve people’s lives. 

When Iowans are in a crisis, we can reach out and find the help that we need. 

This is critical, this is one of the things that was missing before. 

Kim Reynolds has made mental health a priority. She listened to the experts and worked with both parties, that’s what leaders are supposed to do.

  1. What are the improvements that will be provided by this bill? Does it address the lack of mental health care providers? Not just the number of beds, but the low number of mental health professionals (psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychiatric nurse practitioners).
