Document Description
To address mental health care needs of inmates and comply with a federal court order, CDCR is proposing to construct a 50-bed Mental Health Crisis Beds (MHCB) facility at California Men's Colony (CMC). The proposed MHCB facility would be licensed as a Correctional Treatment Center (CTC) for short-term inpatient care for inmates in mental health crisis. The 2 story building would feature ~45,000 sf of space for housing, treatment, and support and administrative services. Infrastructure improvements associated with the project would include installing additional inmate recreation yards, establishing connections to existing utilities, and extending the existing secure perimeter to include the new facility. In addition, an existing staff parking lot that is located in the proposed location of the MHCB facility would be removed, and additional parking would be built adjacent to existing lots to provide parking for the new facility. The project has the potential to result in an increase of not more than 50 additional inmates, and 200 additional staff spread over three shifts.
