S.F. Supervisor Promises Ballot Initiative if Board Does Not OK Creation of Laura’s Law Mental Health Program
On Tuesday, San Francisco Supervisor Mark Farrell said he will put a measure on the November ballot to create a county program under Laura's Law that would require outpatient treatment of residents with severe mentally illnesses if the majority of the board does not vote to implement such a program. Similar programs have been approved or piloted in Nevada, Orange and Yolo counties.
