Yolo County’s Local Mental Health Board invites the community to attend its meeting Monday, which will include a presentation and discussion related to the possibility of implementing a Laura’s Law-type program in Yolo County.
Authored by former Assemblywoman Helen M. Thomson, Laura’s Law, or Assembly Bill 1421, passed in 2002 and allows for court-ordered assisted outpatient treatment programs in California counties for individuals with severe mental illness who are too ill to seek care voluntarily.
The Local Mental Health Board meeting will include a presentation from Nevada County staff regarding its assisted outpatient treatment program. Following the presentation, there will be discussion and questions by the board, and then an opportunity for the public to comment.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Walker/Thomson Room of the Herbert Bauer Health and Alcohol, Drug & Mental Health Building, 137 N. Cottonwood St. in Woodland.
