El Paso Sheriff’s Office Proposes Mental Health Program for Officers

The El Paso Sheriff’s office is seeking approval from Commissioners Court to launch a mental health program for officers. The program, set to be presented in March 2024, aims to provide 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. Funding for this initiative comes from a grant award.

This proposal marks a significant step towards prioritizing the mental health of law enforcement officers in El Paso. It is essential that we provide support and resources to those who serve and protect our community on a daily basis.
