'Harnessing the Spirit'

December 17, 1985

A curious thing about your editorial complimenting the County Department of Mental Health's allocation of the state's $7.3 million for the homeless mentally ill: whenever people speak of the homeless mentally ill they inevitably speak of Skid Row (that was the only district referred to in your editorial) and with good cause. Up to one out of every two or three homeless mentally ill people in the county live there. Yet, the Department of Mental Health plans to spend less than one-tenth of the money for the homeless mentally ill in this district!
