Mental health advocate and legislative giant releases new information regarding upcoming congressional campaign

GREENVILLE, SC. September 7, 2017-- In the midst of a large victory for mental health reform, Paton Blough steps away from his congressional campaign to focus largely on more legislative wins. With the Crisis Intervention Team Training Law passed unanimously into existence in May, Blough is fueled to make more life-saving legislation.

"The bill is huge and we still have yet to fully compute the amount of people who will be helped and the lives that will be saved through this legislation," Blough shares. The magnitude of the impact of the bill influenced Blough's ultimate decision to leverage his efforts towards more accomplishments in mental health and criminal just reform.

While Blough will be suspending all campaign activities and not seeking any publicly elected office, he has shared his gratitude for his supporters and further details his next steps in a personal blog post.
