Defund Criminalization of those with Mental Illness/Fund Care
By NAMI El Dorado County Board Member
El Dorado County is working on a Stepping Up Initiative to provide more Mental Health Treatment and less criminalization. This Defunding Article is looking at supporting our community care of those with Mental Health. Our own officers have shared that when trained, they understand that 50-70% of their cases deal with Mental Health /and /or Drug Alcohol abuse.
