Rep. Whiteford talks about House passage Wednesday of her HB 5439, which creates a psychiatric bed registry in Michigan that health care professionals can access for real-time information about the availability of in-patient beds.  The measure came out of the Representative’s work on the bipartisan CARES (Community, Access, Resources, Education and Safety) task force on mental health issues that met across Michigan in 2017.
