Conservatorship is a tool, but we must continue with other efforts


"We will utilize every available tool to address the issues of behavioral health and homelessness. With the Board’s approval today, our County can move to fully implement the conservatorship law to help those with the most severe behavioral health challenges. Ultimately, we want to build a regional, coordinated, integrated behavioral health system that prevents people from needing a conservator. Our ultimate success as a region should be judged on keeping people out of that situation, but in the interim we will utilize every option that can provide help to those most in need."
