Chair of the day: Rachelle Bussell
There is an increasing epidemic of people with behavioral health conditions across the nation. The challenges are particularly great in San Bernardino County due to growing populations, insufficient numbers of psychiatrists and other ancillary personnel, and lack of sufficient psychiatric hospital beds in the County. The problem is amplified by longstanding funding challenges at the local, State, and federal levels. Join us to better understand the issues and the work being done locally to serve this vulnerable population.
