A long-time champion of mental health services hopes to see a new psychiatric center in Evansville. 

During Monday’s discussion involving sheriffs, state legislators, and other officials at the Vanderburgh County Jail, a frequent topic was mental health.

"I know that they are looking at the opportunity for us to eventually build a new Children's Psychiatric Center on the grounds of the Evansville State Hospital," said Indiana State Senator Vaneta Becker. 

The new center would replace the 52-year-old facility on East Morgan Ave.

The Atchison-Holt Ambulance District spans two counties and 1,100 square miles in the far northwest corner of Missouri. The EMTs who drive these ambulances cover nearly 10 times more land area than their counterparts in Omaha, the nearest major city. 

While serving time in jail, Emma King had to go to great lengths to find something as common as tampons. She and other women in prison eventually learned how to make their own.

Three University of Evansville students are hoping to make a difference in female hygiene for low income and homeless women in Evansville.

 

Jampon – jamming out for pads and tampons – will collect boxes of tampons, pads, or liners as an admission fee and then donate what’s gathered towards the local Young Women’s Christian Association.

“The problem of homeless or otherwise underprivileged women not being able to afford sanitary products has just bothered me for a really long time,” said Alexandra Curren.
