"RR. Out of this appropriation, $2,500,000 the second year from the general fund is designated to Community Services Boards to hire additional staff for Crisis Stabilization Units whose bed capacity is not fully utilized because of lack of staff."


(This amendment provides $2.5 million the second year from the general fund to Community Services Board (CSB) to hire additional staff to Crisis Stabilization Units (CSU) that are not able to use all their beds because of a lack of staff. This funding would support hiring approximately 20 registered nurses and licensed clinicians. Additional CSU beds would help avoid placing individuals in state psychiatric hospitals.)
