Later today, Governor Ron DeSantis and First Lady Casey DeSantis will hold a "listening session" on mental health issues. The discussion will take place at 3 p.m. at the governor's mansion.
Changes to behavioral health have been a focal point of the DeSantis administration. In January, mental health experts and medical professionals -- members of DeSantis' transition team -- discussed various ways to combat ongoing issues in the Sunshine State.
The high-profile problems plaguing the state involve a lingering opioid crisis, and mental health among adolescents involved in last year's Parkland shooting.
