A community conversation about gaps in mental health care in the Crossroads has been postponed because of Hurricane Harvey. The conversation had been set for Thursday at the VISD Conference Center in Room D.

The event was prompted by the Victoria Advocate, which published an award-winning series called "Minds That Matters" over two years. The stories sought to bring more insight and understanding to the often-taboo topic.

The Gulf Bend Center, the local mental health authority for the seven-county region, also was going to speak and answer questions about recent reform and programs. The newspaper and Gulf Bend plan to reschedule the forum.
