Please bring recommendations.

Commissioner Tamley has informed us that on May 23, 2018, the mayor introduced an ordinance (# O2018-4236) to approve the lease renewal for the building at 4150 W 55th St, that houses the Greater Lawn Mental Health Center. The landlord is 4150 Partnership and the lease is for another six years or until 2024. The city will pay monthly rent of $24,425 for the first three years ($879,300) and $25,160 per month for the second three years of the lease ($905,760).

The lease requires the landlord to make renovations and repairs or “Site Improvements” to address ADA compliance issues at the landlord’s expense &  detailed in Exhibit A  (see pages 22 to 31).  Improvements include painting interior rooms and new carpet. The Site Improvements are to be done within 120 days of the lease renewal. The lease also requests the landlord to provide items listed in Exhibit B but at cost to the City.

The City Council has not acted on the lease, it has been introduced and referred to the Committee on Housing and Real Estate.  The date of the next committee meeting is not posted.

Renovations to the receptionist window appeared to be underway when we visited the Center on May 21, 2018.

Still needed: interior decorator, signage, mural, and planters, flag, new furniture.

Thank you Community Mental Health Board participants for deciding to visit the center, speaking up and raising concerns, requesting an ADA accessibility investigation, and persisting with the inquiry until the MOPD investigated and shared the results and plan.

CDPH – Behavioral Health Capacity Assessment

Behavioral Health Capacity Assessment

On October 31, 2017, Commissioner Julie Morita told the Chicago City Council that the Department had completed an assessment of the quantity, availability, capacity, and service array of behavioral health services in the city of Chicago (including mental health services).

Under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, a copy of the completed Behavioral Health Capacity Assessment was requested.  On November 16, 2017 CDPH wrote:

Currently, the department is working to develop a formal report that will highlight key findings from the behavioral health capacity assessment. The report will be widely distributed among stakeholders. Once it is ready, we can provide you with a copy.

CDPH did provide copies of the agency surveys (although these had previously been posted on the CDPH website). CDPH also sent a redacted copy of the spreadsheet of data from agencies responding to the survey.

In response to a recent request, CDPH continues to report that “[a] final report of the behavioral health capacity assessment has not been completed at this time. Once ready, the report will be made available.”

The survey questionnaires are here and here.

Database is here.  (June 2016-January 2017)

According to CDPH “the attached excel spreadsheet of available data collected that includes agency name, address, hours provided on the weekend and/or after 5:00 during the week, ward, community area, zip code and behavioral or mental health services. Telephone numbers were not collected as part of the survey. Please note that agencies responding to the survey were asked what types of information can be shared publicly. As a result, you will find that there are some fields where information has been redacted to honor such requests.” Letter from CDPH FOIA Officer dated 11/15/2017.

The last survey was compiled in 2003. Here you can access the 2003 questionnaire and the Profile of Chicago’s Mental Health System 2003.

Survey of persons served

In November, CDPH told the Community Mental Health Board that the Department had completed a survey of CDPH mental health center participants and would share the results with the Board.

The Department says that “[a] client satisfaction survey was disseminated in Quarter 3 of 2017. However, results have not been compiled at this time. Once ready, a report will be made available.” Letter from CDPH FOIA Officer dated 04/04/2018.
