The Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners approved a Community Support and Treatment Services budget that will allow the county to continue to offer mental health services, but it won't stop layoffs.

Washtenaw County is considering the expansion of community support treatment services to help meet the needs of a growing number of people receiving mental illness and substance abuse services.  WEMU's Andrew Cluley has more on the plan.
