KEMPER REPORT ON MENDOCINO COUNTY MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES RELEASED
In August of 2015, the Executive Office contracted with Kemper Consulting Group to perform a review of Mendocino County’s mental health services, in particular the delivery of services by the Administrative Service Organizations, Redwood Quality Management Company and Ortner Management Group. In conducting this review, Kemper reviewed a wide range of written documents, fiscal and programmatic data, and conducted over 40 key informant interviews, including members of the Board of Supervisors, county staff, Behavioral Health Advisory Board members, justice system officials, representatives of both ASOs, and local service providers.
The Kemper Report includes a thorough assessment of the current issues surrounding delivery of Mendocino County’s mental health services and presents detailed recommendations based on the analysis. On Monday, February 8, 2016, the Board of Supervisor’s Health and Human Services Standing Committee will be discussing a request to hold a Special Meeting of the Board of Supervisors related to the Kemper Report on February 16, 2016, at 1:30 p.m. in the Board of Supervisors Chambers. This meeting would include a public presentation of the report from Kemper Consulting Group and recommendations prepared by Kemper as well as an opportunity for the public to offer input on the report. The Board of Supervisors is expected to make a decision on calling a special meeting at its regular meeting on February 9, 2016.
