Many thanks to Texas media for robust coverage of mental health policy issues during the 82nd legislative session – especially regarding the potential devastation of proposed funding cuts for public mental health services.

Throughout the session, Texas reporters, columnists and editors  brought attention to important policy issues that would affect Texans with mental illness, their families and their communities. They translated complex issues into compelling stories about the potential impact of legislative proposals on the lives of everyday people.

In my opinion, media coverage  about mental health and the legislature was especially strong this session across Texas and it made a real difference at the capitol. What do you think?
