The county is starting to assess those who call in with mental health issues within 48 hours.  In the past, if they weren't in crisis, an appointment was made for a couple weeks later.

 

The county is also looking at hiring a mental health supervisor to help insure these faster response times.

 

Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney says the county has always been very good about responding quickly to those in crisis.  But now they want to make sure those who are struggling get assessed quickly as well, before they could spiral out of control.
