Sheriff Shoar Promotes Mental Health Month

May is Mental Health Month

Via Sheriff David Shoar’s Facebook page:

May is National Mental Health Month. Did you know that the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office is in the process of hiring a person with a strong background in mental health and the treatment of mental illness? Because mental health/illness affects so much of what the department deals with, the new position will assist in identifying ways to maximize the effectiveness in addressing the significant issue of mental health in the community. This person will also become a team leader on the issue of homelessness, which is often connected to mental illness.
