Thank you for supporting me in the NewRoads LakeRide 2021!
Today, Southlake’s Mental Health Program is facing the perfect storm, with capacity challenges made worse by critical factors close to home. Our communities are growing and aging rapidly. We’re seeing rising rates of dementia, addiction and mental illness, and COVID-19 has caused isolation and effects on mental health that will be felt long after the pandemic is over. On average, 17 patients a day come into Southlake’s Emergency Department every day experiencing a mental health crisis.
Thank you for helping me raise much needed help to enhance Mental Health Support for our community to address our most pressing challenges and deliver the compassionate and leading edge care that our communities rely on close to home.
