TW: suicide

Suicides in TX's jails are a preventable tragedy. A significant percentage of county jail inmates have mental disorders and do not receive the treatment and care they deserve. We have to do more to ensure proper mental health screening

County jails in Texas held approximately 65,000 inmates during each of the last few years. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 64 percent of the jail population in the U.S. has a mental illness.

We can't jail our way out of a mental health crisis in this country.
We send our deepest condolences to Tracy Whited's family and loved ones.
