On December 7, 2011, the California Department of Mental Health announced a blueprint to establish the new Department of State Hospitals and reforms to the DMH structure designed to improve the mental hospital system in California.

“We are making the changes that are long overdue,” said DMH Acting-Director, Cliff Allenby. “Earlier this year, we brought in a team of experts who worked closely with administrative, clinical, and operations staff to develop an action plan to enhance care, increase safety measures, and improve the fiscal management of our state mental hospitals.”
