The 2001-03 biennial budget for the states public mental health system is $1.1 billion.  JLARCs performance audit of this system, completed in December 2000, included 14 recommendations to address identified problem areas.  Included were recommendations to improve the coordination of services, to implement an outcome-oriented performance measurement system, and to significantly change the method of allocating funds to the local Regional Support Networks to reduce inequities.  While JLARCs follow-up review found that many recommendations have already been implemented, either in whole or in part, many other key efforts are still in process.
