Governor Chris Sununu recently announced he supports the effort to close the Secure Psychiatric Unit of the Concord state prison and move mentally ill patients to a new mental health facility. New Hampshire is currently one of only a few states that does not have a psychiatric hospital for criminals or those deemed a danger to others. Sununu says the state is investigating whether it makes more sense to build and operate a new hospital or to transfer patients and inmates to a mental health facility that already exists out-of-state.
