Local media report on Rosecrance Mulberry Center’s reduced hours

Several local media outlets have reported on the cuts to hours in triage services by more than half at the Rosecrance Mulberry Center. The triage program will no longer operate around the clock, effective Monday, Nov. 2, 2015, because the state has zeroed out operational funds that were promised to partially fill the gap left when Singer Mental Health Center closed three years ago.
