Atkins Applauds Announcement: A recent announcement from the Sheriff’s Association of Texas has met with approval from at least one member of the local Tri-County Mental Health Board. The sheriff’s association is making funding for mental health services its top priority for the 83rd Legislature. The group’s leaders say mental health issues are a driving force in the criminal justice system. However, Texas ranks at the bottom of the list in mental health funding in the United States. Patti Atkins of Hull is a member of the Tri-County MHMR Board, the community agency charged with providing health care services to those in need in Liberty, Montgomery and Walker counties. Mrs. Atkins applauds the association saying the stigma against mental illnesses combined with the lack of funding to help those who need it means too many of them end up in the criminal justice system.
