Dozens of organizations partner to provide mental health treatment in Florida Jail

Polk County Sheriff’s Office is joining forces with more than a dozen organizations to enhance mental and behavioral health services in the Polk County Jail. “My whole life was a crisis. Everything that I did from the time that I woke up to the time I passed out was a crisis back then,” said Denise Harrison. Denise Harrison said she was once addicted to drugs and suffered from untreated mental health issues, which landed her in and out of jail.
