Sacramento County Mental Health Report Draws Praise
A new report outlining a plan to overhaul the mental health care system in Sacramento County is receiving support from both county officials and plaintiffs of lawsuits challenging cuts to the system. The report was produced by Davis-based consultant Nancy Callahan as part of a U.S. District Court lawsuit filed by patient advocacy groups. A similar lawsuit was filed by mental health care providers in Sacramento Superior Court. The report recommends that the county place more funding in community-based programs than into inpatient programs.
