Focus Groups To Be Scheduled For Mental Health Plan

Sponsored by:

Angels Camp, CA — The Calaveras County Behavioral Health Services and the Calaveras County Mental Health Advisory Board are hoping to hear from the public regarding improved mental health services.

In recent months the groups have held eight community meetings to gather information on the needs of the residents. Now in the second phase of outreach, organizers are scheduling smaller, informal focus groups to provide more opportunities for the community to voice their ideas.

The information gathered from the meetings will be incorporated into the County´s Plan for implementation of the Mental Health Services Act. Passed by California voters, the act provides new state funding for the expansion of local mental health services.
