New York State Mental Hygiene Law requires Local Government Units, which in Erie County is the Department of Mental Health, to annually submit a Local Services Plan to New York State. The plan includes a needs assessment for mental health, substance use disorder, and developmental disability systems of care as well as long-range goals and objectives. Development of the Local Services Plan involves review of available data and consultation with State representatives, community agencies, and people receiving services
