S.F. Mayor Proposes Program To Offer Community-Based Mental Health Care to Homeless Population
In his recent State of the City address, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee (D) said he wants to create a "community-based mental health program" based on Laura's Law, a state law that allows courts to require treatment for residents with severe mental health conditions. The program would be aimed at helping the city's homeless population.
