El Paso, Texas – On March 24, 2015, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office participated in a PBS National Issues Forums (NIF) panel to discuss Mental Illness in America “How do we address a growing problem.” NIF is a nonpartisan, national network of locally sponsored forms to discuss public policy issues. The Mental Illness in America forum focused on three areas – collective security, a health society and individual freedom.

Filmed at the KCOS Channel 13 studio, the 18-person panel discussed the pros and cons of possible public policies and their impact on the general population and those who suffer from mental illness. Additional NIF information is available at
