Behavioral Health Services
Our behavioral health system, which includes mental health and substance abuse services, is fundamentally broken. We continue to see homeless individuals throughout our community largely due to untreated mental health or substance use disorders. In response to this, Supervisor Fletcher has made addressing our behavioral health system his number one priority for his first term. He is seeking to implement structural changes in the way behavioral health is delivered. One of his first actions was to introduce policy to create a Behavioral Health Service Hub in his district. He is working alongside experts in the behavioral health field to develop a new vision, a new model with care coordination as a centerpiece to help people navigate to the right service at the right time to meet their needs and heal.
