About Us

Ending a lifelong struggle with schizophrenia, Andrew Holland died a horrific death while in custody at the San Luis Obispo County Jail. His death created a momentum toward finding systemic solutions in San Luis Obispo County. In their grief, his parents founded the Andrew Holland Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to creating a safer society by building a mental health treatment facility to replace incarceration and improve the treatment of those suffering from a brain disease.
