Sacramento County Officials Revise Mental Health Plan
Sacramento County officials have proposed ending four Regional Support Teams that provide the majority of outpatient mental health services and replacing the teams with four Sacramento Wellness Centers rather than a county-run facility. The centers will be staffed with county workers, who will offer clinical services, and contractors, who will provide psychiatric mental health and other services. Mental health advocates sued to block the original plan, which would have relied only on county workers.
