"I think what's really neat about the program is that once Mandy screens them and identifies what their needs are, we have access to programs and to funding that isn't local to serve them, for instance, Flex Funds and Family Centered Services," Flessner said.

Carol Flessner, executive director of the Livingston County Mental Health Board, said during her report that 2011 was another challenging year for human services in the state of Illinois. "The proposed fiscal year 2013 budget for the state of Illinois proposes serving only those individuals who are Medicaid eligible, which means the people who are at low-paying jobs and can't afford services will basically be out of luck. The only exception to that is that there will be crisis services. The proposed budget for mental health services is facing a 10 percent cut," Flessner said. She said the people that could be affected by the proposed cut include people who suffer from mental illnesses. She also said the proposal includes cutting psychiatric services, which she says is the heart of mental health services in the community. She also said that there are no proposed cuts for the budget concerning people with developmental disabilities. "These services generate a 50 percent federal match, so it would be foolish to cut those. Also, the state is under a federal consent decree, called the Ligas Consent Decree, and it mandates that they have to serve people on the waiting list," she explained. Recently, there were 12 people from Livingston County on a services waiting list pulled during a drawing of 800 out of 22,000 people in the entire state needing services. She said that there would be another drawing this summer. She presented a pie chart, showing that funding for the programs are 53 percent federally or state funded, 8 percent to the 708 Board comes from local tax, 3 percent for the 377 Board comes from local tax and 36 percent is self-generated funding. She said there is also positive news, including a program that is up and running due to a grant from the Illinois Children's Foundation, the PPP, which is a parenting program, and the Juvenile Justice Program. She said they are still working on mental health court.
