This brief describes two critical issues needing to be addressed.
One is the fact our BHAB does not have an opportunity to review and approve our county Behavioral Health Service’s Community Program Planning (CPP) processes plan; and the second being the community’s inability to contribute to the decision making process – they would have had we an authentic CPP plan – in deciding to sit on a projected $200m over the next fiscal year.
A number of recommendations are offered for our Board of Supervisors, the BHS, and the current BHAB. Each needs to understand their responsibilities as we try, together, to address so many pressing mental health illness and substance-use disorder issues challenging our county.
