Mental Health

Mental health issues are often times the root cause of some of the toughest and heartbreaking issues we face today. School violence, homelessness, and suicide are just a few problems that I feel can be addressed, to a large extent, by early intervention and proper treatment for individuals struggling with mental health challenges.

I serve on the Community and Technical Colleges Counselors taskforce and sponsored the bill to bring peer to peer counseling testimonial privilege to Department of Corrections staff.
