Mr Truman, We at NAMI Victoria appreciate you speaking out to the public about this problem that is wide spread because it is not one of those community issues that will go away if we stop talking about this problem. Not only is it so bad for the person with the mental illness...it is bad for the entire community due to lack of constructive attention. All surrounding counties should be getting together and working out a solution for all our communities. There would be so much less cost and so many more healthy people walking around. Thanks again for speaking up.
I'm so glad to see one of our City Counsel members is addressing the lack of Mental Health Services in our Community. We also need permanent Pediatric Psychiatrists and Adult Psychiatrists it's inconvenient to travel out of town monthy to see one.
so there are no paid or state supported (free) mental health services in Victoria ?
