Mental Health Care in W.Va.

The Charleston Gazette reports on the recommendations of a task force for spending "$12.7 million to alleviate overcrowding at state psychiatric hospitals and increase community-based services for people with mental illness."

The group formed by the Comprehensive Behavioral Health Commission "did not recommend specific amounts to be spent," the article explains. "Instead, they prioritized certain areas they believe need more investment."
