Otsuka Statement Supporting U.S. House of Reps Passage of 21st Century Cures, Mental Health Reform

Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. and Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, Inc. (Otsuka) are pleased that the United States House of Representatives has passed the combined version of the 21st Century Cures Act, the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act, and the Mental Health and Safe Communities Act (H.R. 34).  We applaud the leadership in the House of Representatives, Congressman Tim Murphy (R-PA) and Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) for leading this bipartisan effort to bring meaningful change for individuals who are living with mental illness today and to help them receive the kind of medical care and support services that they deserve.   We are hopeful that the United States Senate will similarly demonstrate strong bipartisan leadership in their review of the bill in the coming weeks.
