Lee County Last in Mental Health Dollars, Statewide

I started a post on this earlier when I saw the story on NBC-2 that said that Lee County is last in funding for Mental Health support.  That’s not surprising to any of us working in the Criminal Defense field, as getting treatment is always a challenge, and you can see the cycle repeating in the system.  That post became a longer essay, which I’ll post later today.  Until then, check out the NBC story.
