Info about the March 3 DMH public hearing

The Committee on Health, chaired by At-large CM David Catania, is holding a performance oversight hearing for the Department of Mental Health March 3 at 11:00 am in Room 412 of the JAWB.   If you are not able to make it to the Wilson Building, you can watch the hearing live via computer.

Sixteen More than 15 members of the public are scheduled to testify; DMH director Steve Baron testifies last.   Given the importance of the issue; the links between mental health and violence, child neglect and abuse, job stability, and substance abuse; and the number of individuals and organizations seemingly concerned in the issue, I am struck by the small number of public witnesses.
