California Launches Audit of Mental Health Services for Students

The California state auditor has launched a review to determine whether students with disabilities are receiving adequate mental health services from school districts across the state, the CHCF Center for Health Reporting/Sacramento Bee‘s “Capitol Alert” reports.

The center is supported by a grant from the California HealthCare Foundation, which publishes California Healthline.

The audit comes after a 2011 law shifted the responsibility for students’ mental health services from counties to school districts.
