Mental Illness Group Seeks Revision of Sacramento Plan
Sacramento County's chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness is requesting that county officials withdraw a proposal to overhaul outpatient mental health services and replace it with a plan containing more community input. Last week, a federal judge halted the county'sÂ initial proposalÂ because of concerns over whether patients would continue to receive adequate care. The county's plan would have transferred 5,000 mental health patients from regional support centers to county-operated centers.
