Undated (KICD)–Six area counties are forming a mental health and disability service regional administrative entity.
Dickinson County Supervisor Bill Leupold, who serves as spokesperson for the group, tells KICD News that for years some clients were not receiving all of their needed treatment options.  The state then ruled that counties look into teaming up to provide better service.

Kim WIlson with Clay County Community Services will head up Northwest Iowa Care Connections.  She says the main difference of this formation centers on administrative restructuring that will streamline some of their functions behind the scenes.

The next step in this process is forming a mental health management plan for the region.

The initial member counties of Northwest Iowa Care Connections are Clay, Dickinson, Lyon, O Brien, Osceola, and Palo Alto
