New mental health facility dedicated at Corcoran prison

Fresno BeeThe California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation dedicated a new mental health facility Wednesday at Corcoran State Prison, spokesman Bill Sessa said.

The 14,000-square-foot building is the latest addition to the department's $2 billion expansion of medical and mental health facilities to meet court-ordered improvements in the quality of care provided to inmates.

The two-story facility will house rooms for group and individual counseling sessions, recreational therapy and treatment, and offices for clinical professional staff.

About 34,000 prison inmates, or about 25% of California's total prison population, require some form of mental health treatment, Sessa said.
