New campaign by state health officials to raise awareness about mental health issues

State health officials are addressing an issue that many believe has been put on the back burner, and as KLBJ's Perry Watson reports, they're making an effort to change that. Van Deusen also says "Speak Your Mind Texas" will address a number of questions regarding the topic. “What are the issues? What are the resources available? What do we need to do to get people connected with services? Is there more the community can do to help with mental health issues?” He says tonight the discussion will include warning signs of mental illness and drug abuse, particularly as they pertain to youth and young adults. "That’s where we see problems start. In fact, about half of people who will have some sort of mental health issue in their lifetime, that starts to manifest itself by age 14, three-quarters by age 24.”
