The Underfunding of Mental Health Services in Washtenaw County: Systemic Origins and Possible Reforms
Washtenaw County Community Mental Health (WCCMH) had a deficit of $10.3 million in 2019. This study group will start with a discussion of local mental health services and funding issues and then broaden to current and proposed state and federal policies as the actions of each level of government affect the others. A County Commissioner and an expert from WCCMH will each lead one session. The format will be brief presentations followed by discussions. Nelson’s past positions include Senior Staff Economist on the President’s Council of Economic Advisers, Chief Economist of the State of Minnesota, Professor at the University of Minnesota, and Ann Arbor School Board member. He and the study group’s assistant, Alice Carter, are co-chairs of Citizens for Mental Health & Public Safety.
