An update on mental-health services in New Orleans

Two health experts will examine the city’s mental-health system at a breakfast meeting sponsored by the Bureau of Governmental Research. The city’s mental-health framework has been lacking for years but has been made even more threadbare by the recent LSU cuts to emergency-room beds set aside for patients facing mental-health and substance-abuse crises.

This morning from 8 to 9 a.m., BGR presents “The Outlook for Mental-Health Services and What it Means for the City” with two speakers: Dr. Karen DeSalvo, the city’s health commissioner, and Dr. Richard Dalton, a professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at Tulane University School of Medicine.

The meeting will be held in a ballroom at the Chateau Bourbon Hotel, 800 Iberville St.
