One of my great frustrations with our in patient mental health "treatment" process is how little treatment there is on weekends. That means that if you are admitted on a Friday, you get no treatment to speak of until Monday. And if you get released on a Monday, it is after a weekend with nothing substantial going on.

And just being there can be deleterious to the health of a patient, especially one who does poorly with unstructured time.

Hundreds of Millions in Funding Remain Unspent Amid Mental Illness Epidemic Among Homeless in L.A. County

The voters in California voted multiple times to help the homeless and the mentally ill, and now the money is there, and programs need to go into action. And lots of new jobs will be created for more social workers, and others, to help the homeless and the mentally ill.

And the fastest way to get people off of the streets and into housing is to put them in group homes, with services tied in to the group homes.

Salute,
