Westchester Mental Health Department monitoring wait lists at clinics


In light of the closing in 2011 of four county-run mental health clinics, the Westchester Department of Community Mental Health is stepping up its monitoring of waiting lists at the community mental health centers that took over the workload.

Mental Health Commissioner Grant Mitchell told a Legislative committee last week that the department has been spot checking clinic wait lists but, to collect better data, it has developed an online survey for clinics to use for formal monthly reporting.

The survey, which the department will start using next month, includes questions such as can the clinic accommodate walk-ins or same-day appointments and how soon patients see a doctor, broken down by age group.

    Imagine ( How many Mental Inhabitants of America ) are ” on Mental Case Waiting Lists ” at Westchester County Hospital in The State of New York, The United States of America!

    Now, if ” a few Individuals in this List ” are also Teaching at Private Schools ” they are also teaching your Children… And, don’t tell me you didn’t know! …. I write based on.Fact Find and Intelligent Analysis of What’s going on the Ground in Broad Day Light!

    The other aspects that ( The Intelligence Community ) needs to dig and focus on is ” those who are thete to evaluate, evaluating, and returning to THE SOCIAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT are actually accurately Reporting or Not?. However! There is a Reasonable Doubt that the Ones who go to Pay a Visit to Report and Evaluate are actually the ” only ethnicity employed in grow from the Same Country of Origin of which the Ones they are going to evaluate. As a result there is a ” lesser chance” of Reporting Actual Facts! The Trend in America is to ” cover each other” for ” crimes that are taking place” and let the Country go down the Drain!

    It’s a matter of US Dollar Loot and The Multiple Passport while America is snoring!….

    We as a Nation are faced with Brand New and Unprecedented Challenges from.within and America needs to be more vigilant of the Appointees who may have landed in Public Administration Jobs!

    And, its a very serious matter! …. That no one even by mistake talks about! Why….
