Mendocino County receives around $25 million annually (federal and state funds) to provide these services for people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, PTSD, affective disorders, victims of local emergencies; and does not exclude people with substance use disorder, developmental disabilities or other physical and mental disorders (WIC 5600.3).
What’s the best model for providing these services?
