Improving mental health in Oklahoma


Commentary

Mary Ellen Jones

In her State of the State address, Gov. Mary Fallin is to be commended for the inclusion of mental health when talking about health and for proposing increased funding for mental health programs.

Losing bet

Oklahoma’s casino gaming has exploded, but funding of gambling addiction programs hasn’t kept pace.


News

C.G. Niebank

As the number of problem gamblers grows, those charged with administering treatment are tasked with doing more and more with only allocated portions of that yearly $750,000.
