Cathy Pope, CEO of StarCare Specialty Health Systems, said there's a stigma about mental health conversation in West Texas. People don't like to discuss it, Pope said.

"We have to pull together," Pope said
The community should have an emergency mental health care center to visit by Sept. 1, adding an additional resource for area patients, she said.
During the final address for the event, Pope suggested gathering group members for another meeting in the future to continue the conversation.

"The bottom line is without help, he will be back how he was," said Cathy Pope, chief executive officer at Lubbock Regional MHMR.

Pope credits the Lubbock County Detention Center's Special Needs Pod with helping get Robert stabilized.
That's why it is important to get these now-patients into outpatient services and in steady contact with MHMR staff, Pope said.
However, Lubbock MHMR is currently overcapacity, and state-mandated cutbacks have hurt it even more, Pope said.
The first step, Pope said, is establishing a household. Many patients have nothing when they're released from jail - no clothes, towels, dishes or toiletries.
Pope said she prefers to try to find long-term housing for newly released patients instead of sending them to shelters.
Many patients with special needs don't function well in a group setting, such as the Salvation Army.
"The last thing we want to do is put them in a group setting for three days and then out on the street during the day," Pope said. "That's not really very conducive to a good transition."
Some are fortunate enough to have a place to go back to - some semblance of a home life. Others are not so lucky, Pope said.
"If they were homeless, then they have nothing left," Pope said.
That includes Social Security and Medicaid benefits.
If they were receiving benefits before they got locked up, they've lost them and must reapply. They can't reapply until the day they get out, Pope said.
"If we could get benefits established before they leave jail, that would be a huge help," she said.
If everything goes perfectly, they could start receiving benefits in about 30 days, Pope said.
