MENTAL HEALTH: Policy Redesign Underway

Lawmakers got to work on the mental health redesign at the Capitol, Tuesday.

A committee discussed the current status, challenges and funding.

The governor signed off on the changes last year. Instead of the county-by-county system the plan divides the state into six regions.

The goal is to make the services more uniformed.

Lawmakers say it will take years before the changes are fully implemented.
