Governor to announce mental health care initiatives

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Governor Bob McDonnell will announce action Tuesday on Virginia mental health care initiatives.

The announcement comes after last month's tragedy involving state senator Creigh Deed's son, who stabbed his father before taking his own life.

The day before, police say Gus Deeds was denied a room at a mental health facility.

Earlier this month, the Department of Behavioral Health and Development Services announced changes to their policies.

The governor is expected to speak at 11 a.m.
