Mental Health Department to reduce workforce by 650

The Mississippi Department of Mental Health will reduce its workforce by 650 by June 30, 2018, to cope with state budget cuts.

The reduction in employees will be made through layoffs, not filling vacant positions or replacing employees who retire or leave the department.

The Mental Health board met late last month and approved the reduction, which will include laying off roughly 125 employees.
