GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — Harrison County supervisors, after a plea by Chancery Clerk John McAdams, reversed their decision to cut the county's share of the Gulf Coast Mental Health Center's budget by 5 percent.
The Sun Herald reports (http://bit.ly/14X7TvW) the supervisors voted Monday in Gulfport to reverse their position.
Director Jeff Bennett says the center provides a full range of mental health services to Harrison, Hancock, Stone and Pearl River counties.
Its budget, about $10 million annually, includes money from those counties, Medicaid, the state and federal government and United Way, as well as fees paid by patients and money from insurance claims.
