Next online should be the community mental health centers. Ozark Guidance could really use it. They considered it years ago, and Medicaid does pay for telemedicine for adults. It would save a lot of time and money and allow more clients to be seen. Might be a partial solution to the problem with the jails and the lack of service to the mentally ill who are incarcerated.

Since the Mental Health Council of Arkansas is listed as one of the major partner groups, I would think that most of the community mental health centers in the state would be planning to tie into this.

Hey, SPA / Dellmann: If one is competent to gain access to and effectively use the internet and its attendant hardware, one should get a job and pay for one's own mental healthcare.

Why would one get a job when there is welfare and unemployment, and food stamps, and section 8 housing, and ---------------just keep going, it never ends.
