Montgomery County is on the cutting edge in providing psychiatric help to our citizens in need. By combining resources with Walker and Liberty Counties, we have built a new Psychiatric Emergency Treatment Center in Conroe. This facility provides local, qualified treatment for adults with mental illness who are experiencing a psychiatric crisis. Local treatment eliminates long drives, potential time in jail, additional strain on our crowded hospitals, and reduces the time involved by law enforcement personnel in transporting patients.
The Psychiatric Emergency Treatment Center is a collaboration of local funding efforts by Montgomery County, Montgomery County Hospital District, Montgomery County United Way, Montgomery County Clinical Services, City of Conroe and the Department of State Health Services (DSHS). It is a novel approach to a serious need and this effort would have my continuing support as County Commissioner.
