Mental Health Monday: What is a Substance Abuse Mental Health Ombudsman?

(Lander, WY) – Mental Health Monday, the new weekly segment on KOVE 1330 AM / 107.7 FM’s Coffee Time, hosted by Vince Tropea, continued today with guest Kelly Headley, the Substance Abuse Mental Health Ombudsman for the state of Wyoming, under the Wyoming Guardianship Corporation.

Kelly filled us in on what exactly a Substance Abuse Mental Health Ombudsman does, and the services the guardianship process provides for those who are no longer mentally fit to take care for themselves.

In addition to sharing her background, Kelly also explained why/how substance abuse plays such a large role in terms of mental health.
