Common Ground Saving Taxpayers Money

Common Ground saves taxpayers' money by providing other options for people that require mental health services. 40% of adults with mental illness are arrested at some point in their life - almost half of them had not committed a crime! In 2015, Common Ground helped 431 people avoid unnecessary incarceration and thus, saved Oakland County taxpayers $5 million. See infographic below.
