"It's no secret that we have a societal problem on our hands with the accessibility of mental health treatment," Hastings (D-Tinley Park) said. "We must make sure those who need help are able to receive it as quickly and safely as possible. This package is a necessary step as we in the Illinois Senate look to make mental health treatments more accessible to those in need." SB 1715 ensures that pharmacists, in addition to physicians, would be able to administer long-term mental health treatments via injection efficiently and safely, as long as a prescription from a physician is present.  :

The inaccessibility of necessary treatments is a major reason we have so many people suffering from mental health disorders," Hastings said. "As lawmakers we must take it upon ourselves to make treatment as affordable and accessible as possible, and we will continue to make strides with similar legislation.":
