This month’s scheduled speaker is Colleen McKinney, LMSW. She is the Mental Health Policy Fellow for the Texas Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers. Her role is to research and develop policy. Prior to working with NASW, Colleen worked in the Domestic Violence/Intimate Partner field. She will talk about accessibility to mental health treatment for those who are in need of such. Funding for Mental Health in Texas ranks very low compared with most other states. Ms. McKinney will discuss this as it relates to possible legislative changes.
