(This amendment provides $2.5 million in the second year from the general fund to help community services boards hire additional staff for crisis stabilization units (CSU) whose bed capacity is not fully utilized because of a lack of staff. This funding would cover hiring approximately 20 registered nurses and licensed clinicians to support the full staffing and 24/7 operations for existing licensed CSU beds. This is a recommendation of the Behavioral Health Commission.)
