HCR 312 & SR 119 M.H. System Modernization Initiative

Tuesday, February 15, 2005

HCR312 and SR119 were passed in the 2004 Regular Session. They both call for DHH to "investigate, study, and develop a plan or strategy to modernize and improve the state mental health system, focusing particularly on an assessment of the current operation and maintenance of East Louisiana Mental Health System, Central Louisiana State Hospital, New Orleans Adolescent Hospital and Southeast Louisiana State Hospital, with the resulting plan or strategy detailing how Louisiana can modify the current system to reflect the best practices in mental health care today".
