Statement: Board Supports Behavioral Health Hub at Hillcrest Site and Expands Scope
Today the board prioritized our public land and public resources for the greatest public good. The unanimous decision to use the Hillcrest site as a behavioral health hub — and the expansion of our initial proposal to find other locations throughout San Diego County will ensure we create a world class regional system of integrated behavioral healthcare. This demonstrates we are committed to taking substantive action to address the mental health crisis. This new model has the potential to become a behavioral health continuum of care system that serves the four corners of our County. I am eager to work with the community and County staff as we move this project forward.
