Mansfield police start group for families of mentally ill
from Mansfield News-Mirror
Scott Rinehart knows what it feels like to be in a dark place. "Many years ago, I was suicidal," Rinehart said. "I had a shotgun in my mouth. I know what it took to get to this place. It has haunted me." Twenty years later, the Mansfield police officer deals with people in similar situations almost every day as the department's mental health liaison. And he has noticed the silent victims — the families of people with mental illness. Rinehart has started a support group for these families to share ideas, strategies, failures, successes and to get direction.
