Mental Health and Homeless

Featured in Top Stories

According to mental health professionals one out of every five people will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime. Anyone who has dealt with mental illness knows it can result in the loss of a job and the inability to manage daily living. And sometimes it leads to homelessness. Getting the proper care is also difficult because of reduced state funding and a public health system that is hard to navigate. We talked to Dan Straughan, executive director of the homeless alliance of oklahoma city about the mentally ill and homeless.

Affirmative Action (10:00)

Featured in Top Stories

A year from now, America will be just days away from going to the polls to elect a president. In Oklahoma, among the candidates vying for public office there will be more state questions. One issue that will be on that ballot, state question 759, is already motivating people to get organized against it. In 2008 the issue of ending affirmative action was the subject of a petition drive that did not get on the ballot because of problems with the signatures that were gathered. But earlier this year, the state legislature brought the issue back to life in the form of Senate Joint Resolution 15 which is now State Question 759.

ONR Extra Criminal Justice (1:57)

Featured in ONR Extras

Oklahoma's criminal justice system is expensive and is not reducing violent crime. That's the conclusion from a team of consultants who have studied the state's sentencing structure, prison system and crime rates. House Speaker Kris Steele has held a series of public meetings to show the results of the study and gather information on what needs to be done to actually improve Oklahoma’s criminal justice system. In this ONR Extra we have a sampling of information from a public hearing in Muskogee.
