El Paso County Commissioners Set to Decide on Sheriff’s Office Mental Health Program Vote

The El Paso Sheriff’s office is set to launch a mental health program for its officers, with funding coming from a grant award. The program, which is a collaboration with Family Endeavors, Inc., will offer individual and group therapy sessions, as well as specialized treatments such as animal therapy and art therapy to support the mental well-being of Sheriff’s Office personnel.

Sheriff Richard D. Wiles has proposed this initiative, which he believes is crucial in prioritizing the mental health of law enforcement officers in El Paso. If approved by Commissioners Court, the program will operate from March 2024 through March 2025, marking an important step towards supporting the daily work of those who serve and protect our community.
