Jennifer on the Issue:
We’ve all seen the ways in which diminished funding for mental health care leaves our community members behind; people who need psychiatric treatment are neglected on the street or incarcerated rather than offered community-based preventative care. In addition to being far more expensive, this has led to extended and unconstitutional stays in county jail for some of our most vulnerable residents. As a County Supervisor, I will advocate for shifting funds into community-based care, to ensure our community has access to compassionate, preventative, and high-quality mental health services to give people the freedom to heal while providing for families and loved ones at home.
