EDITORIAL: Colorado politicians address mental health crisis

Senate Bill 223 overhauls the criminal process for those whose mental competency is in question, and requires the Department of Human Services to track their conditions and ensure they get required treatments. The bill passed the House by a 59-4 vote.

The Legislature this week did right by the mentally ill and those who love them. It is a good start; let’s keep this momentum going and make Colorado a place to get and stay well.
