Senator partners with sheriff to increase mental health resources for inmates

Hertel, who serves as Minority Vice Chair of the subcommittee and Senate Appropriations committee, says increasing funding for mental health treatment and forensic center beds is one of his top budget priorities for the state.

“This is a pervasive issue across the nation and Michigan is no exception,” said Hertel. “Without adequate funding for mental health facilities, jails have become some of the country’s largest treatment centers, but they’re not equipped to provide proper care.”
