RESOLUTION NO. 18/0221-4
CHISAGO COUNTY’S SUPPORT FOR STATE CAPITAL INVESTMENTS FOR REGIONAL BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CRISIS PROGRAM FACILITIES AND PERMANENT SUPPORTIVE
HOUSING FOR PEOPLE WITH
BEHAVIORAL HEALTH NEEDS

WHEREAS, Minnesota’s mental health continuum of care is underdeveloped, creating harmful and expensive gaps in an individual’s treatment; and
    
WHEREAS, Minnesota’s mental health system does not have the capacity to consistently respond to the needs of individuals in crisis with appropriate treatment options; and
    
WHEREAS, individuals experiencing a mental health crisis are often diverted to jails and other facilities ill-equipped for their care while awaiting inpatient treatment; and
    
WHEREAS, individuals ready for discharge from inpatient treatment can be detained at inpatient facilities because there is a scarcity of supportive housing units to transition to; and    
    
WHEREAS, the gaps in Minnesota’s mental health system are not only damaging to individuals and their families, but also result in an inefficient use of taxpayer dollars; and
    
WHEREAS, Minnesota has an opportunity to improve its mental health continuum of care through investments in new permanent supportive housing and regional behavioral health crisis program facilities; now, therefore,
    
BE IT RESOLVED, Chisago County supports state capital investments for regional behavioral health crisis program facilities and permanent supportive housing for people with behavioral health needs.
