Los Angeles County supervisors voted for the first time Tuesday to turn over the operation of a county-run mental health clinic to a private firm, but not before weathering some controversy over the contract award. Employees and union representatives at the La Puente Community Mental Health Center challenged the $2.1-million agreement after complaining that the pact would cost the county money and disrupt care for mental health patients in the San Gabriel Valley.

Methodical. Kind. Tough. Tireless. Clear-thinking. Direct. Wonderful. With such adjectives, people who have worked with and for Areta Crowell appear unanimous that Los Angeles' loss will be San Diego's gain--a county mental health director who knows where she wants to take a system and can inspire others to help move it there. Crowell will take the San Diego job in mid-May, ending two decades of holding key positions in the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health.

Facing a new deadline to close by August, the Arcadia Mental Health Center is working with a reduced staff and has trimmed its caseload from a high of 2,000 several years ago to about 60 now, the center's director said. The center continues to offer its 24-hour mobile Psychiatric Emergency Team, which assists law enforcement agencies by evaluating and transporting mentally ill people, but now staffs it with three counselors instead of five, director John Wells said. "We're doing the best we can to respond to their emergencies," Wells said.
