Supervisors OK Expanded Mental Health Services

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– The County Board of Supervisors recently approved enhanced board and care services for mental health patients.

This will provide an array of enhanced services, with 24/7 supervision and care, allows emotional support, stabilization, self-reliance, life skills improvements, and integration into the community. These services have enabled the County Department of Behavioral Health to reduce a consumer’s length of stay in acute psychiatric hospitals, long-term locked psychiatric residential facilities, as well as aiding in the transition to a lower level of care while still having access to specialty services. T

he project is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Community Mental Health Services Block Grant.
