Can a task force improve Mississippi’s approach to mental health?

JACKSON – After years of asking the Legislature to increase funds for the Department of Mental Health, Mississippi’s attorney general is saying it’s time to change the conversation on mental health in the state.

On Tuesday, Attorney General Jim Hood convened the state’s first task force on mental health. The meeting brought together 50 leaders in state law enforcement, healthcare and policy. Their goal he said was to generate new approaches to mental health in the state – and not, he insists, to ask for more money.
