State mental health plan may leave Ithaca without adequate care
"I think what’s going to happen to the people who are the most mentally ill is theyre going to take them to the closest place, which could be a prison, said Jean Walters. Walters has been involved with NAMI-FL, the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, Finger Lakes, for decades. She has family members with chronic mental illness, and she has serious concerns about what will happen to people with mental illness when the state Office of Mental Health closes local psychiatric inpatient facilities in Elmira and Binghamton.
Long-term care is a necessity which our community must be afforded.
