YOLO COUNTY LOCAL MENTAL HEALTH

Board of Supervisors
Throughout the year, the Yolo County Board of Supervisors makes decisions affecting the lives of people with psychiatric disorders living in Yolo County. Until recently, NAMI members have had no regular notification of when issues important to the mental health community were to be decided.  Board agendas and minutes  are also online and give a window into decisions made by the board that may be relevant to the mental health community.

The Board meets regularly on  the first, third, and fourth Tuesdays of the month at the County Administration Building located at 625 Court Street, Woodland.

Questions regarding an agenda item should be directed to the County Administrative Office at (530) 666-8150. Questions regarding action taken by the Board should be directed to the Clerk of the Board at (530) 666-8195

California Mental Health Directors Association
Although a statewide organization, the California Mental Health Directors Association website is an excellent resource for identifying the issues and challenges facing county mental health systems. Their website provides unique insight into public mental health issues.

The Small Counties Committee is responsible for identifying the unique issues small county mental health systems face and for making policy recommendations. White papers, meeting minutes, agendas, legislative issues are available online at their website.
