Mental Health Committee Meeting on Monday

RICHMOND, Va. According to the Richmond Times Dispatch, the Joint Subcommittee to Study Mental Health Services in the Commonwealth in the 21st Century will meet for the first time on Monday, to look at the current mental health system in Virginia.

Senator. R. Creigh Deeds, D-Bath, is one of 12 legislators on the subcommittee, who hopes the panel’s work will put Virginia at the forefront of states’ efforts to improve treatment of the mentally ill. Valley Senator Emmett Hanger is also on the committee.

As you may recall last year, Senator Deeds was attacked by his own son, who suffered from mental health problem. Gus Deeds later killed himself, at the family's home in Bath county.
