Mendocino County Code entitled the “Mental Health Treatment Act” adopting a County Transaction (Sales) and Use Tax for the specific purpose of funding improved services, treatment and facilities for persons with mental health conditions. The facilities that the County is pursuing is a combination of a Psychiatric Health Facility (PHF), a Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU), and / or a Crisis Residential Treatment (CRT) facility.

The Crisis Residential Treatment (CRT) facility offers social rehabilitation services in a safe, welcoming, non-institutional residential setting. The CRT shall provide a less restrictive but structured program as an alternative to hospitalization for individuals experiencing an acute psychiatric episode or crises who require 24-hour support in order to return to community living.
