Wednesday’s editorial is a peek inside the workings of the local mental health agency, which shamefully is funded by two of the three counties it represents (Georgetown and Williamsburg) but not by Horry County (where most of its emergency cases come from). But I digress. That’s not really what the editorial’s focused on:
Maintaining appropriate body weight and handling personal finances are typically concerns of folks who have mental illness and are going through recovery, so those topics will be covered at the first recovery conference of the Waccamaw Center for Mental Health. “It’s a new deal for us,” – and an event envisoned as happening in future years, says Linda Wright of the Waccamaw Center.
