Pictured: The November meeting of the Mayor's Commission on the Status of Women included a presentation of information on the latest programs that are actively serving and assisting the mentally ill in the Tulsa community. Melissa Baldwin, Director of Justice and Policy and Michael Brose, CEO of the Mental Health Association presented the information. Baldwin and Brose explained there are numerous collaborative and community-wide efforts designed  to help people access the resources they need to avoid incarceration, increase public safety while reducing the jail population – especially for people with mental illness, as well as ensuring resources are used efficiently to provide better outcomes at lower cost to taxpayers. Look for a listing of these programs and contact information here soon. 

 

The Commission acts as the central clearing house and coordinating agency for activities and information relating to women.
