Reshape mental health system

Jun 06, 2019 - The San Francisco Chronicle

I commend the quality of reporting by Heather Knight and Trisha Thadani regarding the mental health crisis in San Francisco. Thadani's piece, "S.F. supes tepidly back bill targeting mentally ill" June 5, underscores that the mayor and Board of Supervisors understand that conservatorship is just one tool in the toolbox of a mental health system. While their action on this matter is well-intentioned, taken in context, it falls far short of what is required to impact the crisis.
