wraparound service
 adj.— «We have tried to persuade our legislators and governor to provide the comprehensive treatment so desperately needed by those who suffer from severe mental illness.…But to no avail. Two assembly bills, both sponsored by Helen Thomson, D- Davis, failed to gain funding. AB1421, which would have provided “wraparound” service to the severely mentally ill, was snuffed out in a conference committee.» —“Mental health loses out” San Francisco Chronicle (California) Oct. 4, 2001.
