Young, Jack counties devise mental health strategy at workshop

Young and Jack County officials came together last week to devise a strategy for dealing with the region’s lack of mental health resources at a two-day workshop organized by the Texas Judicial Commission on Mental Health at the American Patriot Ranch in Decatur. The workshop resulted in a three-point action plan that will have the attention of state lawmakers and could move the bi-county effort to the tops of some grant and funding programs, organizers said.
