Mental Health & Hospital News

 We would like to thank all those that attended this Magnet Event held on November 8th here at Houston Behavioral Healthcare Hospital. Developed by UT Police and sponsored by our hospital the event focused on the current issues that surround us all in terms of the current status of safe patient care in the assesment, handling, and treatment of behavioral and mental health patients.

The speakers were:

Frank Webb Project Manager for the Bureau of Mental Health and Jail Diversion in the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Amber Pastucek M.D. Board certified in both Psychiatry and Neurology Psychiatry and Board Certified in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Loretta Coonan Licensed Clinical Social Worker in both clinical and administrative positions within the Mental Health Care Line with the Veterans Association.

We look forward to working with these groups and others as this event becomes more attended and are excited about participating as a partner with them to find solutions as a team. Congratulations to UT Police for their efforts in driving the narrative in this direction. Houston Behavioral Healthcare Hospital will always participate in any and all efforts.
