During the 2017 legislative session, there were many legislators who supported the Department of Mental Health and stood up for the individuals and families we serve. We can’t thank them enough for their support. Unfortunately, there are some elected officials who would have you believe their knowledge of the Department of Mental Health is vast; however, I would ask if they have ever toured or visited a DMH program. The individuals that suffer most from all this political rhetoric are the clients, their families and the dedicated staff providing services.
