"The link between mental health, criminal recidivism, and drug abuse is clear. As an attorney, a court-appointed Mental Health Examiner, and a Public Defender who practiced in the Behavioral Health Court, I know early intervention is critical to stopping crime. Justice and our community’s future are my top priority.”
