Four out of five counties in California don't have a single hospital bed for children in a psychiatric emergency. Today we continue our series on acute mental health care.

CORRECTION: Due to a reporting error, the original version of this story incorrectly identified John Muir Medical Center, Concord as the facility where Maria Ramirez's granddaughter was taken. We regret that error.
