People in mental health crises often end up in ERs or jail. An $80M plan is proposed to help

If you are a Minnesotan experiencing a mental health crisis, there’s a strong chance that the police officers or paramedics who respond to your call for help will take you to jail or a hospital emergency room because too few other treatment options are available.

Or you may be taken hundreds of miles to another state where a psychiatric bed is available, making it hard for your family to visit.
