Despite drastic changes in health care standards and practices, the Texas Mental Health Code has not been extensively revised in over 25 years. Earlier this year, the Hogg Foundation awarded a $90,861 policy grant to Texas Appleseed for a project that seeks to identify and recommend changes needed to modernize the code. The project, led by Dr. Susan Stone, will hold an open meeting at Green Oaks Hospital in Dallas to provide a project update and solicit input from stakeholders. The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 16 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Visit the project’s Facebook page to find out more about how you can participate in the process.
