Writer's Room Podcast - Let's talk about Oklahoma's mental health system
For decades, federal researchers and Oklahoma officials have warned of the consequences of not making a long-term investment in mental health, and for decades, those warnings have been largely ignored. Health reporter Jaclyn Cosgrove talks about the first installment in her series “Epidemic Ignored,” which is a yearlong investigation into Oklahoma’s mental health system. We also hear from Commissioner Terri White, of the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, and Gov. Mary Fallin.
