[Excerpt of an email sent to Judge Mary Morgan of the San Francisco Superior Court]
Dear Judge Morgan,
Thanks to you, Lisa, and the rest of the Behavioral Health Court staff and clinicians for welcoming us to the whole court process last week. It was an inspiring day for me to see and hear about so many clients that I know (some for almost 20 years) who are doing so well with your creative and skillful interventions. I couldn't wait to get back to the hospital and tell my colleagues about our clients.
Thanks again for inviting us. The BHC is the most hopeful mental health intervention I have seen in years.
