Category: Public Affairs

On The Pulse this week, we discuss the impact of the “religious freedom” laws on mental health professionals, that could allow them to turn patients in need away based on the professionals’ beliefs. Will Francis of the National Association of Social Workers – Texas joins us for this conversation.

In case you missed it, April was Sexual Assault Awareness Month. However, the need for education on sexual assault issues is year round. We review legal protections for survivors of sexual assault with founding partner of Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher and Perry, John Sloan.
