Need For Mental Health Services In The Brazos Valley Expressed During Mental Health Awareness Month Proclamation

A shortage of funding for mental health services was among the messages from remarks by two speakers after a proclamation was presented by Brazos County and the twin cities for May’s mental health awareness month.

Dr. Carly McCord, the clinical director of Texas A&M’s Telehealth clinic, provided an update on services that are provided at five offices in the Brazos Valley.
