California County Concerned With Private MH Care

Quick link here to a story about a press conference that was held by a group of mental health advocates in Sata Barbara, CA to discuss a report about ways to reduce the amount of mentally ill people who go to jail and to ensure they receive adequate treatment while incarcerated.  Some of the people who spoke cited concerns with the treatment provided by Corizon, a for-profit medical and mental healthcare provider that serves the jail, and the lack of oversight to monitor the company.
