California Annual Report on the Behavioral Health Delivery System

California’s behavioral health delivery system is in crisis, with a deficiency of in- and out-patient providers for the growing population. The attached report provides data on hospital inpatient services available for individuals needing this level of care. This is a preliminary report. The final report will include additional data points related to the delivery system.

In addition, the report compares psychiatric beds and facilities in California to the rest of the United States, and breaks down California’s services by county, illustrating the different types of beds available as well as listing California’s 24 (of 58) counties with no inpatient psychiatric services at all.
