Comp Care has already began laying off therapists and prescribers(psychiatrists and nurses). In all 100 employees will be laid off between April 15th and June 15th 2011.

Shannon Ware, CEO of Bluegrass Regional Mental Health Board, said that due to the poor state budget and sluggish economy "layoffs are the only way we can stay in business. In 2007, Bluegrass Comp Care laid off 75 employees and have had difficulty keeping up with the total volume of mentally ill people in the 17 counties that Bluegrass serves.

Woodford, Nicholas and Madison Counties are said to be hit the hardest with upcoming layoffs said Service Area Manager, Delmer O'dell.
