Blogger Comments: We believed from the beginning that Sheriff Puckett was going to make major changes within the jail. For us, this is an issue near and dear to our hearts. People who suffer mental illness do not ask for the disease. Often times drug addiction is secondary to their mental illness. Most mentally ill should be in mental health facilities or in programs within their community to help them stabilize their mental health treatment and train them to take their medicine as prescribed. This sounds easy for me and you but is far more difficult for the mentally ill. God bless you, Sheriff Puckett and Kathy Goodwin and those who work alongside you to make a difference.
