    Judge Comment: -Very informative read. Was glad the author mentioned gaps in the MediCal program. -Good use of quotes -Would have been interesting to hear from sources about how/why they think mental health services are a good use of tax dollars. The input from Robin’s father was also interesting. A well-balanced story.
