Mental health services are needed both in the community and the jail, but 32 "mental health jail beds" are not required to provide such services. On the contrary, spending more money on incarceration means less fo spend on mental health professionals and other important services. If CCC would stop profiting on human suffering by ending the disgraceful ICE contract, there would be more than enough jail capacity required for to ensure public safety. Incarceration for any other reason is unacceptable.
