SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Shasta County Board of Supervisors has voted and approved a measure to add a new Mental Health Facility in the county.

The board voted on Sept. 11 to approve a 20-bed facility center that will cater to patients with mental illnesses. 

Supervisors say that there is a need for this type of facility in the county. 

"This is the most overwhelming response we've had," said Les Baugh of the Shasta County Board of Supervisors. "I can't think of anything as big in the last two decades in Shasta County. This restores mental health treatment programs inside the county." 

The center is scheduled to open in three weeks and it will cost 7 million in the first three years to operate. 

Supervisors say that another benefit of the new center is that it will be freeing up space in the county jail.

Slightly warmer but mostly below average temperatures, and the potential for mountain thunderstorms are on the way in your Friday forecast. Get ready for much hotter temperatures on the way for your weekend.
