Grand jury finds that San Diego spends too little on mentally ill

The jury found that the county ranks 52nd among California’s 56 counties in per-capita spending on the mentally ill, creating a situation in which there are too few treatment facilities and they are understaffed. The report includes 51 recommendations to improve treatment.

County officials have two months to respond to the recommendations.
